RAJAHMUNDRY: The vigilance department officials seized 246 quintals of onions Thursday from the merchants, with the help of the revenue and police departments and sent it to rythu bazaars. Meanwhile, the issue was taken to the notice of chief minister Chandrababu Naidu.

On a tip-off, vigilance officials raided a shop and found 246 quintals of onions stored without proper bills and tried to seize them Wednesday. But the merchants in the market prevented the officials from taking away the hoarded onions.

Thereupon, the officials lodged a complaint in the court of joint collector, who in turn directed the officials to seize the unauthorised stock.

Divisional civil supplies officer Satyanarayana Raju said after disposing of the onions, the money will be deposited in the court. As per the directions of the joint collector, a showcause notice was issued to the dealer.
