GORKHA: Police have arrested two persons on the charge of black marketing chemical fertilizers.

Proprietor of the Himalayan Gorkha Agro Farm Private Limited Bhakta Bahadur Shrestha and his employee Resham Shrestha were arrested on Saturday from Nibel in ward no. 1 of Thapa rural municipality, police said.

The firm did not carry a license to sell chemical fertilizer but was found selling it for exorbitant price, said Chief of District Police Office, Gorkha, Om Prasad Adhikari. The firm had been selling chemical fertilizer for Rs. 35 per kg.

The firm was raided following complaints by farmers. A special team had been deputed from the district headquarters to arrest the duo. Police have also sealed off the firm where 53 sacks of chemical fertilizer were found.

Legal action has been initiated against the duo as per the Black Marketing (Control) Act, 2032. Earlier, farmers had also staged a sit-in in front of the firm after coming to know that they had been cheated.
