32 Tonnes of Adulterated Chili Powder Seized
Police today seized 32 tonne of chili powder, which they suspect is adulterated, from two lorries near Penugolanu village in Krishna district today.
The trucks had taken a detour to escape police check-post, but were eventually intercepted.
“We seized the lorries as their drivers could not produce any relevant documents for the chili powder,” said Sub-Inspector P. Sivaramakrishna.
The drivers were taken into custody while the powder and vehicles were handed over to District Food Inspector.
