CID-CB to probe spurious milk case, dairy officials under lens

The Crime Branch (CID-CB) of the Rajasthan Police has taken over the investigation into the adulterated milk case discovered on November 17 at Kaithun near Chaksu in Jaipur.

Orders for the case being shifted from Chaksu police station of Jaipur to the Crime Branch were issued on Wednesday.

The decision to transfer the case was influenced by suspicions surrounding the involvement of several senior officials, including the managing director, quality controller, and vigilance officer of the dairy.

ADGP (Crime) Dinesh MN emphasised the seriousness of the issue saying, “Hazardous synthetic milk products pose a very serious threat to public health. We are intensively investigating to uncover a larger conspiracy behind the facilitation of numerous spurious milk products.”

Police stated that their probe includes a thorough examination of the roles played by senior officials. “The investigation aims to shed light on the reasons and modus operandi behind the production and distribution of adulterated milk products and ensure accountability for those involved in compromising the quality of dairy products because kids also consume these products,” said an official.

Preliminary investigations by the police revealed that the role of dairy employees was suspected in the irregularities in bringing milk.
“Only local farmers registered at the BMC centre can give the milk. Whereas milk was being ordered from another district at that particular centre which raises questions about how it was being operated,” said an official.
He added that the police have not ruled out the possibility of there being a major racket behind the spurious milk distribution in the region.
