Adulterated milk seized, five held in Peshawar

The district administration has arrested five people and seized about 8,000 liters of adulterated milk during a raid on a franchise here on Thursday.

Peshawar’s acting deputy commissioner Shahid Mehmood said in a statement that the action was taken following complaints about supply of contaminated milk to the consumers.

It stated that the dealer was found mixing dangerous chemicals with milk. The statement said that the franchise ‘Ever Best Milk’ was located at Gharibabad where the action was taken following laboratory tests by the staff of livestock department.

It said that the milk was mixed with alum, sugarcane juice and cooking oil which led to sealing of the franchise in a raid conducted by additional assistant commissioner Abdul Nabi and livestock department director Dr Masoom Ali. The milk was supplied in containers from Punjab to parts of Peshawar.
