While every other sanitiser maker claim that their product gives total protection from viruses and germs there are some unscrupulous elements who are out there trying to take advantage of the situation.

Police in Gujarat’s Vadodra has arrested one such individual, who was manufacturing sanitiser using methanol — a hazardous chemical.
The accused identified as Nitin Kotwani was running a hand sanitiser manufacturing unit in the city for nearly 10 months now. 

But according to officials, the sanitiser made by AK Industries had a big quantity of methanol that is a hazardous chemical.
Kotwani told the police that he replaced ethanol with methanol that is much cheaper.
He was arrested on Tuesday after the Pollution Control Board conducted a raid at the manufacturing facility following a tip-off.
