Supreme Court expresses concern over sale of adulterated milk in country

New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): The Supreme Court (SC) here on Tuesday expressed concern over the sale of adulterated milk in the country, and urged state governments to curb its sale.

A bench of Justices K. S. Radhakrishnan and Pinaki Chandra Ghose directed the Governments of Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Delhi to file their response stating what action they are taking to put an end to the menace of milk adulteration.

The Court said that it would later expand the ambit of the PIL to include all the states in the country on the issue.

The bench posted the matter for hearing on July 31 and made it clear that no further time will be given to the states to file their submissions. It was hearing a PIL filed by a group of citizens who have alleged that synthetic and adulterated milk and milk products are being prepared using urea, detergent, refined oil, caustic soda and white paint.
