KHAMMAM: Led by Sub-divisional Police Officer P. Rameshaiah police parties raided five godowns in the town and seized huge stocks of crackers. Tonnes of crackers were illegally stored in the godowns. The raids were prompted by fire works used in a big way during the nomination rally of an independent candidate in the town that resulted in the violation of the model code of conduct earlier in the day. Police booked cases against the owners of the godowns.
