Unhygienic Food Stalls at Panambur Beach: DC Ravi Kumar Orders Closure of Ten Eateries

Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner M.R. Ravi Kumar, visited Panambur beach on Sunday morning, to participate in the beach cleaning programme. During his visit, the DC made 10 eateries temporarily close down operations after finding them preparing and serving food in unhygienic conditions and failing to produce trade license. He also cleared the encroachment of a toilet meant for women on the beach. The toilet had been converted into a store-cum-restroom.

The Dc said, he found that cabbage and tomatoes in the store room of an eatery were half-eaten by rodents and worms. He has asked the Health Department authorities to conduct sample tests of food prepared by the eateries to ascertain whether they contained any contents that were harmful. Further action would be taken based on the findings of the laboratory report.

The Deputy Commissioner said that some persons from Bihar had encroached upon the toilet meant for women in the Sulabh Shouchalaya and had converted its two bathrooms, two toilets as store room-cum-rest rooms. After getting them vacated, the toilet was made operational for use by women. To mislead tourists and other visitors to the beach, they had displayed a board that the toilet was meant for VIPs.

The Deputy Commissioner said that the matter would be taken up further and suitable action would be taken accordingly.
