Two traders have been fined Tk 5,000 for selling onions at high prices in Dinajpur. The mobile court conducted an hour-long raid at Katabari raw market of Fulbari town in the district on Saturday from 12 noon to 1 pm.

At that time, Assistant Commissioner (Land) Muhammad Jafar Arif Chowdhury fined two traders for selling onions at high prices.

After India announced ban on onion export, the price of onion in Dinajpur suddenly increased by Tk 80 to Tk 100 per kg. In this, every kilogram of onion is sold in the market for Tk 180 to Tk 200.

After fining the traders, Assistant Commissioner (Land) Muhammad Zafar Arif Chowdhury directed the traders to sell onion at the fixed price.

Due to the increase in the price of onion, India decided to increase the export price on October 29. Although this restriction was given till 31st of this month, India has extended it for another three months.

It was said in the previous instructions that onions can be exported to any country in the world. However, the minimum price of onion per ton should be kept at 800 dollars. Transport and insurance costs are not included in this price.
