One held for threatening HP gas inspector, released

The Ponda police arrested Sudip Sejgiri Pai, 43, a native of Udupi in Karnataka, for allegedly restricting entry to an HP gas inspector, Arvind Singh, and threatening him on Monday afternoon. He was later released on bail.

Ponda police said that Pai was illegally using HP LPG cylinders in his restaurant, 'Shubha Laxmi', at Warkhande-Ponda. The HP gas sales officer and inspector went to the restaurant for an inspection. "Singh found five domestic HP cylinders being used in the kitchen. He confiscated them and was in the process of taking them back when Pai reached there and illegally restricted his entry into the restaurant and threatened him," police said.[TOI]
