Reports have emerged of substandard fuel being sold at fuel stations in Trincomalee, Batticaloa and Ampara.

Secretary to the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Upali Marasinghe said that information has come to light of certain fuel stations that mix fuel with Kerosene oil, and of those who have installed fuel meters that give false readings.

The Ministry has formed a committee to carry out raids to nab such wrong-doers.
