action taken after years

Two big scrap dealers are flourishing rapidly in Sakti. Here deals from needle to ship are done. These scrap dealers have been running their illegal business in the city for a long time. Due to political protection, the police did not take any action against them for years. Due to this, stolen goods have also been easily consumed here for a long time. Government office items have been converted into junk and disposed of here with great enthusiasm. As soon as the government changed in Chhattisgarh and after the arrival of new SP in Sakti district, now police raids have been seen on the hideouts of Kabaris.
