Chichawatni (Sahiwal News Live – April 25, 2020 – Municipal Committee Representative) Food department with police seized 2 tankers carrying 6600 liters of fake milk. Two persons were arrested while two managed to escape.
The Food Department, acting on a tip-off from the Special Branch, seized two tankers carrying 6600 liters of fake milk on the National Highway and arrested two persons while two persons managed to escape.
The counterfeit was found to be delivering unhealthy milk mixed with chemical to Okara. Assistant Commissioner Raja Qasim Mehboob said the milk was coming from a Mian Channu factory in two tankers.
Upon receiving the information, we stopped the tankers and checked them which contained unhealthy milk made by chemicals.
We have contacted the tehsil administration of Mian Channu and informed them about this. We have also registered a case against the arrested persons and they will be prosecuted according to the law.
“Under no circumstances will we allow such illegal activities,” he added.
He also appealed to the people to keep an eye on such elements around them so that such people could be brought to book.
On the other hand, the milk was dumped in the canal and wasted.
