A mobile court has fined four traders for selling salt and onion at a high price in Patuakhali amid the price boosting rumors.

The raid was conducted on Tuesday afternoon at the city’s New Market area under the direction of the district administration.

Executive Magistrate Mahbubul Islam said four people, including Sultan Mia, Zakaria Shikdar, Zakir Hossain, were fined Tk 2 lakh five thousand for selling salt-onion and expired products at high prices.

He added that there is no crisis of salt in the market. A group is spreading such rumors to create unstable conditions in the country. He also requested not to pay hit to such rumors.
