Illegal Ghee Manufacturing Unit Unearthed in Amreli District

An illicit factory producing counterfeit ghee has been exposed in the Amreli district. In a recent raid conducted near the bustling village of Lilian in Amreli, the police discovered a facility with a substantial quantity of spurious ghee stored in the vicinity of a water plant. The police promptly intervened, seizing a whopping 2100 kilograms of fake ghee from the premises. Subsequently, a formal complaint was lodged, leading to the identification of four suspects, of which the primary accused remains at large.

The operation was led by D.Y.S.P. Jagdish Singh Bhandari of the Amreli Division. The Food and Drugs Department team arrived late at night to collect samples of the ghee.

The delay in providing the answer key has strengthened the belief that there might be irregularities in the examination, and therefore, there are strong demands for the cancellation of the exam.
