The video was taken at the Jahangir milk farm, Golkhabar, by an active resident of the area. Upon receiving complaints, the police booked a case against the owner of the farm under sections 269, 272, 273 of the Indian Penal Code.
Speaking to Newsmeter, investigating officer Sravan P, said ” We have arrested Sohail, owner of the dairy farm, but the one filmed in the video is still absconding. The owner says that he did not know about the contamination of milk. However, we have booked a case against him and will continue to look for the accused as well.”
The complaint was registered by Azmath Jeffery of public grievance association. Post the complaint, the farm was sealed.
The officer further added that if any instance of the same nature comes to light in other areas, citizens can approach their nearest police station and register a complaint.
