Puttur: Police Draw a Blank after Surprise Raid on Commercial Complex at Uppinangady

Puttur: The citizens and traders in Uppinangady were taken by surprise when a police team headed by Puttur subdivision assistant superintendent of police C B Ryshyanth and circle inspector Mahesh Prasad conducted a sudden raid on a private commercial complex around 5 pm on Saturday.

There was no undesirable development in town to lead to such action. This intrigued everyone around. The police inspected the shops that had opened for business from outside. Many shops had been rented to be used as warehouses or stock-room and remained locked.

Their owners were called for and asked to open the locked shops, which the police inspected. The shops included one in which the local panchayat had stacked its records and four vacant shops which are yet to be rented.

ASP Ryshyanth also went to the panchayat office behind the complex and held discussions with president Abdul Rahman. Assistant revenue commissioner Satish Kumar also happened to arrive, but he said he came on a different mission and had nothing to do with the raid.

In spite of a search lasting an hour and a half, the police did not find anything illegal and returned empty-handed.

Informed sources said that the raid was conducted upon receiving a tip-off that unauthorized stock of petrol and diesel was being stored there, which was proved untrue.
