AGRA: More than 4000 liters of pungent smelling sour milk was thrown in gutters by team of Food Safety and Drug Administration (FSDA) along with officials of district administration on Tuesday in Kheragarh tehsil of Agra.

A team of FSDA led by designated officer Ramnaresh Yadav conducted surprise raid at a private (P C Sheghal dairy) chilling center in Kheragarh tehsil and found large quantity of adulterated milk being dispatched to different districts such as Mathura, Firozabad, Faridabad and Delhi. Last week too, FSDA destroyed 1500 liters of milk from Kheragarh tehsil and collected four samples of milk after 120 students fell sick after consuming milk under the mid-day meal scheme at a school in Kheragarh tehsil on September 30.

It may be mentioned here that nearly 40 kilometers away from Agra city Kheragarh tehsil is a huge market for synthetic/adulterated milk production, a stronghold of the 'milk mafia'. The adulterated milk industry gets especially active a few weeks before any festival. Local administration has apprehensions regarding the possibility of adulterated milk having been the cause behind the incident of students feeling sick last Wednesday.

Speaking to TOI, chief food safety inspector Ramnaresh Yadav said, "We got an input about adulterated milk being ready to transfer in other districts of state and neighboring ones. We found 4000 liters of pungent smelling sour milk being mixed with caustic soda so that it cannot be detected about its quality.

"We arrested owners of the chilling plant (Narendar Sheghal and Papu Sheghal), who tried to obstruct us while we were seizing the milk. The duo brothers have been booked under IPC section 332 (Voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) and 353 (Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty)," he said.

On asking what actions have been taken against duo for selling adulterated milk, Yadav said, "We have sent the samples of the milk, once the report of the samples comes we will book the duo as per FSDA rules."
