Mr Ashok Chaudhary, board of director, Mehsana dairy cited this incident of adulteration as unfortunate. The said ghee is to be marketed under the brand Amul which has very high level of trust and credibility. The culprits must be punished and the samples may be tested in some other labs also for validation. The driver was caught redhanded and a complaint is filed by Rajasthan Police so there is no scope for any politics in the case.
