Milk samples from Tamilnadu sent to Pune lab for testing
NewsPatrolling.com : Following the warning of Tamilnadu Diaries Minister, K T Rajhendra Balaji on adulterating the milk with toxic chemicals to enhance the shelf life by the private milk suppliers, the Tamilnadu Government has sent the samples to Central Food Laboratory in Pune for a detailed analysis.
Earlier, the Pune laboratory claimed that they received no milk samples from Tamilnadu Government. The lab director Suhas Bakre said. “It will take two weeks for us to test and send the report to officials in the state. We will be testing the milk for fat content, chemicals and other substances. The results will be sent by June 20”.
Minister Rajhendra Balaji earlier complained that “These chemicals are available freely in cities like Chennai, Madurai, Trichy and Coimbatore. In Chennai, these chemicals can be purchased for Rs 20 from Flower Bazaar. They are mixed with milk to increase shelf life”.
A sachet of whole milk produced by a private firm was sent to the laboratory by the designated officer in Erode for testing “fat” content. “The sample failed the test and we sent the report to the officer concerned. There were no toxic chemicals in it,” Bakre said.
An official on condition of anonymity said that the samples tested in Aavin Laboratory had detected chemicals in the privately manufactured milk but that cannot be used as a base to file a complaint since the testing has to be done in a designated and neutral laboratory.
Manesar gang rape
In a major breakthrough, one of the accused in the Manesar gang rape has been arrested by the police. The other two involved in the gang rape have also been identified by Gurgaon police and efforts are being made to locate and arrest them. It may be recalled that the police had circulated the sketches of the three accused to help catch the perpetrators. However, the tip came through an unexpected way when one of the suspects confessed to his crime before the sarpanch of the village where he used to live. The village where all the three accused live is Bas Kusla village in Manesar. After hearing the confession of one of the accused, Sarpanch Jitender Chauhan called ACP Dharamvir Singh, who has been tasked to lead the Special Investigative Team (SIT) formed to look into the case.
The police arrived soon after, in just around 15 minutes and arrested the one accused. The accused confessed to his crime before the police and also revealed the identities of two other who were involved in the gang rape. Gurgaon police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar said that the accused arrested has been taken to the Manesar Industrial police station in sector 7. He said that the other two accused have also been identified and will be arrested soon. It is believed that all the three accused were originally from Bulandshahar district in Uttar Pradesh. They were living in the village on rent.
