Acting on complaints from local dairies, the police and the officials of the food department raided the residence of Ashok Kumar (30) at Biyyapupalle village of Chowdepalle mandal. The officials seized some chemicals and milk powder from the spot.

Circle Inspector Madhusudhan Reddy said the accused used to allegedly mix certain chemicals and sunflower oil with milk powder, thus producing thick liquid. He would later mix it with the regular milk procured from the farmers. The adulterated stocks were supplied to local dairy farms. This used to reportedly fetch about ₹20,000 a month to the accused.

The police officer said the samples collected from the accused were sent to the forensic lab in Hyderabad. Further investigation is on.

As U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration seeks to revive its ambitious social spending and climate plan in Congress, environmental groups and the farm industry are at odds over proposed subsidies aimed at offsetting agriculture’s substantial contribution to global warming.
