Fatehabad: The demand for sweets increases rapidly during the festive season. In such a situation, cases of adulteration also increase. On Wednesday, Sub-Inspector Rajesh Kumar, head of the Chief Minister’s Flying Squad team, and Dr. Azad Singh, security officer of the food supply department, conducted a raid on the milk dairy and milk product manufacturing company. During this time, a large amount of spoiled milk cream and ghee was found there, which was destroyed after the dairy operator’s consent. The information about the Chief Minister Flying Squad team’s raid in the city spread quickly, due to which many other dairy operators locked down their respective locations and disappeared.
