New Delhi, Aug 1 - The East Delhi Municipal Corporation Friday began issuing notices to sweet shops that use areas outside their premises for preparing sweets.

The action from the civic body comes after three-year-old Deva died after falling into a pot of boiling sugar syrup outside a sweet shop in east Delhi's Trilokpuri area Tuesday evening.

The corporation in east Delhi has given challans (notices) to 32 sweet shops in north Shahdara and 56 in south Shahdara.

We have also given written notices to 40 sweet shops. If their owners do not comply with the notices soon, then we will seal the shops, Meenakshi Suryavanshi, mayor of east Delhi corporation, told IANS.

She added that they will crack down on such shops as these are illegally using the area outside their premises to prepare sweets.

One such unfortunate accident has happened. We cannot let anything happen in the future, added Meenakshi.
