TIRUCHI: Sleuths of the Food Cell CID wing of the police seized 75 bags containing ration rice from a private godown at Anna Nagar here and arrested the godown owner Ganesan (43), of Palakkarai, on Friday.

The ration rice was kept in the godown for illegal sale. Police sources here said Ganesan was involved in illegal sale of ration rice earlier and had been absconding.

The Food Cell sleuths maintained a watch in the godown for the past few days and arrested Ganesan when he came there on Friday. The sources said the sleuths had seized five vehicles belonging to Ganesan, including two mini lorries used for illegal transportation of ration rice earlier.
