Two vendors held for adulterating milk by Cyberabad police

Paste of urea, oil and milk powder added to liquid milk

Hyderabad: Two milk vendors were arrested at Ghatkesar by the Cyberabad police on Tuesday for allegedly mixing a paste of urea, oil and milk powder with milk.

The police found 40 kg of urea, five sunflower oil packets and 18 milk powder packets which were used to make the paste for adulterating milk. The paste is made with a glass of urea, a glass of oil and two packets of milk powder. The milk will then have a lot of fat and will also give a lot of cream.

The police nabbed Baktha Ravi, 26, and Mohammed Rasheed, 24, while they were mixing the paste with milk. Eleven cans of adulterated milk measuring 440 litres were found at the spot. The duo had another seven cans (280 litres) in which they were planning to add the paste.

Inspector Narsing Rao and SI Anjaneyulu who conducted the raid said, “We are not clear how much the actual urea content is. The milk will have to be tested by the food controller. We caught them while they were mixing the paste with milk. They sell this milk to hotels, tea vendors, sweet shops and homes in Ghatkesar, Cherlapally and ECIL. They claimed sweet shops were happy with their milk as it gave a lot of cream.” The duo and the seized materials were handed over to the Malkajgiri police.
