GUWAHATI: The Dispur Police on January 2 seized 12 pick-up vans at Khanapara, Guwahati for carrying poultry leftover illegally.

The matter of illegal transportation of these wastes came to light after the party that received the GMC tender to collect the waste failed to submit its revenue for last two months to the GMC. After the GMC issued a notice to the party it lodged a complaint that someone else has been carrying the poultry leftover illegally from the designated places.
