Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) team swung into action against meat and fish traders on Thursday and collected Rs 11,100 fine in 14 cases. Action was taken against meat traders in ward no. 1, 57 and 72. Two meat shops were closed in Gandhi Nagar under ward no-1 while meat shops were closed in ward no-57. Meat/fish traders were removed from Hoshangabad Road, DRM office, Habibganj Naka.

Similarly, a spot fine was imposed against three traders for violating guideline at Habibganj Naka and four kilogram meat confiscated from these shops was destroyed. A meat shop, which was in the green belt, was demolished near AIIMS. Besides, 5 kilogram fish was destroyed after removing roadside shop in Barkheda Pathani and Bajarang Market. Meat traders were removed in Bhanpur under ward no. 72.

Meat/fish traders have been asked to have a valid licence. They have to install opaque glass to hide the skinned meat. Similarly, traders have not been allowed to sell even fish at roadside shops. BMC additional commissioner Ranveer Singh said, “Action against meat/fish shops should not be linked with livelihood as it is related to health and hygiene. Traders have to follow guidelines.”
