New Delhi, Apr 19 (UNI) The Delhi High Court has issued notices to the Ministry of Petroleum, Ministry of Home Affairs and State Ministry for Food and Supplies to reply to a writ petition filed by a journalist seeking redressal to the problem of shortage of LPG cylinders in the capital.

A Bench headed by Justice Manmohan Sarin last week directed the respondents to file their reply as what measures are being adopted by them to curb the illegal selling of LPG cylinders in the market.

A writ petition was filed by one Sanjay Tiwari Ujala stating that some gas agencies in the capital have connived together to create a false shortage of LPG cylinders in the market by getting into the illegal practice of selling LPG cylinders at exhorbitant prices thereby creating panic among the consumers.

Though the petitioner has named many gas agencies involved in the illegal practice, the Court has asked him to furnish more evidence against these agencies along with the name of their parent LPG company.
