Mangaluru: Dakshina Kannada deputy commissioner Ravi Kumar M on Sunday ordered the closure of nine shops, including six fast food stalls, that were functioning illegally at Panambur Beach.

The DC noticed a lack of hygiene in fast food outlets along the shoreline.
This was while he was participating in a cleanliness drive organised by the Dakshina Kannada District Working Journalists Association, district administration, and CREDAI.

The DC told reporters that shops and food outlets had not maintained cleanliness.

They were letting blackwater from their shops flow to the sea causing an imbalance that would affect marine creatures. Further, they also have not obtained valid permission from the authorities and a trade license from the Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC). In addition, they have constructed structures without obtaining permits, he said, adding that a case will also be filed against all shops.

The DC visited the kitchens of the fast food stalls and found adulterated edible oils kept for cooking food.
