Several gangs adulterate milk at the dairy level on the city’s outskirts.They mix chemicals to produce synthetic milk. These chemicals have a negative impact on human health.In Hyderabad city, the gangs are adopting a simpler method to cheat people. They add up to 50 per cent water to dilute milk supplied by branded dairies.
Cyberabad additional DCP (Crimes) B. Srinivas Reddy said, “These gangs skillfully cut the corner of milk sachets and take out the milk. They add an equal amount of water and seal the sachets with packing machines.”These gangs select colonies where middle-class families reside or slum areas. People living in these locations generally are not too particular about the manufacturing and expiry dates printed on the milk sachets.
