A probe has been ordered in a case where a receipt was issued to a customer, allegedly by a city trader, with a tagline that said, ‘Islam is the only solution.’
This bill receipt has gone viral on social media.
Police have identified the trader who owns a rubber material outlet in the Meston Road area of Kanpur.
When a call was made on the mobile number printed on the receipt it was found to be switched off.
