The tanker owners are selling milk to private dairies making lakhs of rupees profit. Followed by complaints from consumers about poor quality milk MANMUL president Rama Chandra detected 6 milk tankers with alterations.
All the vehicles were also seized. In the enquiry, it was revealed that the tanker owners were doing this adulteration with support of MANMUL officers , sharing profit with them said Maddur Dy SP Navin Kumar probing the case. The MANMUL board suspended the seven officers involved in the scam and transferred the Managing Director. But so far police did not arrest any officer in this regard raised doubts.
