The police have arrested Hitesh Kumar of Prajapati Bass and Dharminder Singh Chawda of Hindrol in Gandhinagar district of Gujarat for selling uncertified hybrid cotton seed to farmers of the Abohar area.

A case was registered against them under Section 420 of the IPC, Section 7 of the Essential Commodities Act and the Seed Control Act. Thirteen packets of Sewak-511 and Sewak-711, processed by Om Hybrid Seed Company, were recovered from them. There were reports that they were also taking advance booking for seed.

Chief Agricultural Officer Manjit Singh said on a tip-off about the marketing of uncertified cotton seed, a team comprising Assistant Plant Protection Officer Sarwan Kumar, Agricultural Development Officer Vijay Singh and Sub Inspector Praveen Kumar was dispatched.

The suspects were found selling cotton seed in Rajpura village located on the Abohar-Hanumangarh road. They failed to produce valid documents about certification and licence to market the seed. The matter was reported to the Wahabwala police, after which the duo were nabbed.
