IOC diesel mixed with kerosene? Featured

Complaints have been lodged that diesel pumped at filling stations owned by Indian Oil Company (IOC) smells of Kerosene.

One Supun Ariyaratne, a consumer from Dambulla, has lodged a complaint with the Dambulla Police and the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) yesterday (24) seeking an immediate inquiry into the incident and clarification.

He has also requested the authorities to conduct a solvent test to ascertain whether kerosene has actually been added to the fuel.

Our Dambulla correspondent states that diesel pumped at several fuel stations in the Dambulla area smells of Kerosene.

It is further reported that the Dambulla Police has already initiated an investigation and the CAA is also to issue a report after looking into the matter.
