The accused have been identified as Santosh Routray and Surendra Singh. Police said that both the accused have been peddling brown sugar in Bhubaneswar and adjoining areas for past few months.

Excise officials said that the root of the peddling racket originates from Balasore and adjoining areas. “The banned contraband is mostly smuggled into Odisha from states such as Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.
