Would add water and sell milk in pouches of known brands

The Mumbai Police Crime Branch, in a joint raid with the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), arrested six people on Wednesday for allegedly selling adulterated milk in branded pouches to unsuspecting customers.

A Crime Branch officer said, “We were informed about the racket earlier this week and contacted the FDA. In a joint operation, we raided a house on Quarry Road in Malad in the early hours of Wednesday, and found two men and a woman adding water to milk. We also seized 200 Amul and Gokul milk pouches of 500 ml each,” a Crime Branch officer said.

Based on the questioning of the three accused, another raid was carried out within an hour at Saraswati Chawl in Goregaon, where they picked up two men and one woman. The police also seized 421 pouches of Amul milk from the house.

Bulk purchase

“The trio would buy milk pouches in bulk and empty them out into large containers. They would mix in water, and fill the adulterated milk in 500 ml pouches with logos of brands like Gokul and Amul printed on them. The pouches would then be sealed and released into the market,” the officer said.

All the six accused, Krishna Ambati (49), Anjaiah Mutyala (32), Shankar Rachamalla (19), Saidulu Aleti (25), Sujata Mutyala (25) and Ramuluamma Rachamallah (40), have been charged with adulteration of food or drink, using false property mark, counterfeiting a property mark, cheating and forgery under the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act.

“We are interrogating them for information about their distribution network, and from where they were buying the milk. As per inquiries so far, Mr. Ambati is the mastermind of the racket. Further arrests are likely,” the police officer said.
