In the meantime, some tense situation was witnessed during the raid when some shopkeepers even went on a flash protest opposing the raid. The intervention of the police  helped in cooling down the situation. The protesting shopkeepers alleged that the officials had even seized the grocery bags in their shops though they were permitted to use them.

 The raiding team was led by MCC Environmental Officer Madhu. Plastic ban is in force in the city since April 15.
