Sunday, 21/09/2014

NAGPUR: Acting on a tip off from a consumer activist Mohammad Shahid Sharif, a team of food wing of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) led by assistant commissioner NR Wakode raided the residence of Gyaneshwar Paunikar in Adarash Vinkar Colony in Tandapeth and caught him red handed adulterating milk of various local as well as national brands. FDA has filed a complaint against the accused under section 26 of Food Safety Act 2006 and IPC sections 272 and 273. The process of lodging an FIR has also been initiated.

The team, besides Wakode, consisted of food safety officers AS Mahajan and AD Raut. They found packets of pasteurized, homogenized and toned milk of brands like Amul, Dinshaw and Haldiram. He had been opening these packets, removing milk, filling them with water with the help of a group of his associates. The team seized 39 litres of milk costing Rs912.

Sharif, who runs an anti-adulteration society, had been keeping a watch on Paunikar for some time and had informed the FDA about it. He told TOI that the accused used a special machine to cut open the packets. He used packets discarded from the tea stalls to refill them for selling them back in the market.
