NELLORE: Police have seized 27 trucks carrying rice and paddy illegally to Tamil Nadu at Monubolu police checkpost late Sunday night.

According to Gudur DSP Choudeswari, the cops were conducting searches on the highway at Manubolu on Sunday night when they noticed 27 trucks following one another towards Tamil Nadu. Suspecting foul play, police intercepted the vehicles and found that they were carrying goods without having proper documentation.

Of the 27 trucks each containing 600 bags, two were having paddy, one green gram and the remaining 24 were carrying rice.

Police said the rice was sent for chemical analysis to find out whether it was meant for Public Distribution System (PDS). The trucks were handed over to civil supplies authorities.

Police, however, are tight lipped over detaining those involved in the illegal transportation of rice to the neighbouring state. There are even allegations that some more vehicles were left by police scot free.
