Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The MP State Agricultural Marketing Board, Bhopal, has served show-cause notices on two officers of the Devi Ahilybai Holkar Fruits and Vegetables Mandi.
GV Rashmi, managing director of the board, has served the notices on Mahendra Singh Chauhan, joint director of the mandi, and mandi secretary Naresh Parmar. The notices have been served in a case where two minors were tied to a lorry and dragged at Choithram Mandi a few days ago. They were allegedly caught and beaten up for mobile theft.
