A mobile court destroyed 400kg of mangoes in Satkhira's Kaliganj.

Kaliganj Upazila Assistant Commissioner (Land) Azahar Ali along with Kaliganj Upazila Agriculture Officer Wasim Uddin conducted the raid at Azizul Islam's godown in Krishnanagar village around 11:30am on Saturday.

Azahar Ali said: " Some dishonest traders in the Krishnanagar area use harmful chemicals to ripen unripe mangoes, which they then trade throughout the country, including Dhaka.

“We conducted a raid at the godown of trader Azizul Islam. From there, toxic chemically-ripened mangoes were seized. However, Azizul Islam escaped before the raid. Later, the mangoes are crushed by the wheels of the car,” he added.
