Cuttack: The Twin City Commissionerate Police busted an adulterated tea manufacturing unit located at Mukameswar village under Sadar police limits in Cuttack.
Acting on a tip-off about the illegal activity, a special team of Cuttack Sadar police conducted a surprise raid and seized huge cache of adulterated tea powder, duplicate labels of many branded tea companies, tea-processing machines and raw materials.
Cops have also detained one person in this connection.
Notably, a joint team of the Chauliaganj police and Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) has recently seized more than 100 kg of adulterated paneer in the city and arrested a person in this connection.
Cuttack city has seemingly become an adulteration hub as police had earlier busted many spurious edible production units in the recent past.
