Gurugram civic body seals illegal meat shops

Twenty-four illegal meat shops were sealed by the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) on Wednesday across the city.

The shops sealed by the MCG included eight in Firoz Gandhi Colony, four shops in Laxman Vihar and five in Sector 39.

On Khattar’s orders

The action against the illegal meat shops was initiated following directions by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar during public grievances meeting on March 31.

Notices issued

In the wake of the directions from Mr. Khattar, the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram sent notices to illegal shops to down their shutters within two days or face action.

The MCG enforcement teams led by medical officer Ashish Singla sealed the shops during the day-long action.

Several shopkeepers, however, shut down the shops on their own.
