Angul: The special squad of Angul town police Saturday busted a fake potato chips manufacturing unit from Kumand-Bhandubar area on the outskirts of Angul town.
Earlier, fake edible oil, turmeric powder and wheat manufacturing units were busted in this industry-rich district.
The chips manufacturing unit had been operating for the last five years evading police’s watchful eyes. The police have detained Sandeep Goel, the owner of the unit. After receiving a tip-off regarding the fake chips manufacturing unit, the special squad led by sub-inspector Dinakrushna Mishra conducted a raid on the unit at Kumand-Bhandubar area.
Besides huge quantity of finidhed products ready for selling, large amount of empty packets with branding of popular companies, raw materials, spice powder some bars of chocolates manufactured in 2016 and mosquito-repelling license were seized. Preliminary investigation reveals that the unit does not have requisite permission to manufacture such food items nor has it been registered.
“These units are just the tip of iceberg. If the police and special squad conduct raids regularly, more such units can be busted and people, particularly children, can be saved from suffering harmful effects of consuming such fake food items,” observed a local resident.
Besides Mishra, Angul SDPO Ashwini Kumar Sahu, Sadar police station IIC Prabhat Tripathy, SI Prakash Chandra Majhi also took part in conducting raids.
