Onions lead to murders on the highways…
People scrambling to buy onions at a price of Rs.10 for 500 grams, subsidised by a local club in Kolkata. The price of onions, a staple in Indian cooking, has gone through the roof in the past few months, quadrupling to as much as Rs.100 a kilogram. As such gangs of thieves have taken to hijacking onion laden trucks on the highways. The thieves invariably murder the drivers for fear of being identified.
