Panel to probe illegal trade

Stunned by the revelation of illegal cigarette trade, Dispur on Wednesday announced a panel to probe it.
Official sources told Assam Times that an additional Chief Secretary will probe illegal cigarette trade in the state.

The panel will further suggest a slew of measures to check and disband illegal trade in cigarettes reportedly happening in the state. The panel will study different aspects of the illegal trade in cigarettes and come out with a strategy to stop it.

The announcement came a day after FICCI released a report on illegal trade in seven core sectors resulting in Rs 39,239 crore of revenue loss in 2014.
