KATHMANDU: With Nepal at high risk of coronavirus, the government has taken action against various six firms and dealers for their involvement in black marketeering of medical goods including mask and sanitizers.

A team deployed from the Department of Commerce, Supplies and Consumers Protection Management on Wednesday fined Chhetrapati-based Nepal Care and Surgical Suppliers Rs 200,000 for creating artificial shortage of mask and hiking the prices of mask.

The investigation carried out by the Department found that it was selling at high price creating artificial shortage of the medical goods.
