Turbat: Vegetable vendors and owners of fruit carts have alleged that on the direction of Assistant Commissioner (AC) the policemen broke down their vegetable and fruit carts and beaten-up those who resisted this act on Tuesday.
According to the sources the action was taken against encroachment by different shop keepers, vegetable and fruit sellers at Turbat Market.
One of the vendors said, “The AC has asked us for not doing business in market but they do not have another alternate suitable place to provide us.”
The small scale businessmen termed it a conspiracy against them and said that action in opposition to them was just to facilitate some rich people.
“This is a conspiracy against poor people that they should shutdown their shops and let the wealthy shopkeepers should sell their products,” said one of the Vegetable sellers.
A large number of shopkeepers shutdown their shops and showed sympathies with the food sellers and condemn the act of administration.
