Lentil price soared in a local market of Kushtia town as two influential lentil traders stockpiled a huge amount of lentil at their storehouse, creating an artificial crisis. 

Being informed of the incident, a mobile court fined the traders for hoarding around 600 maunds lentil. 

The traders Boiddanath Saha and Shwapan Saha were fined respectively Tk50,000 and Tk1,00,000 as they failed to show necessary documents for all of their stored lentil.

Executive Magistrate Md Shobuj Hasan of the district administration led the drive at Boro Bazar in Kushtia town on Wednesday. 

The illegal stockpile was then arranged to be sold at a fair price.
