The Supreme Court yesterday formed a local commission to inspect different milk and water companies with directions to Punjab Food Authority to ensure completion of reports on samples taken from the local companies.
The bench headed by designate Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar took up the matter of distribution of contaminated milk and water and observed that it would take this matter to the logical end.
During the hearing, the bench snubbed the officials of the companies which were manufacturing milk products and water when read reports on contaminated elements in the milk. The bench observed that “No one would be allowed to play havoc with the lives of the innocent citizens.”
Lawyer-petitioner Barrister Zafarullha Khan submitted that according to the laboratory report of Pakistan Council of Scientific Industrial Research there was detergent powder and dangerous chemical particles in not only loose but also packed milk of some companies. He said authorities have failed to take action against the responsible of providing contaminated milk in the market.
PFA Director General Noorul Amin Mengal appeared before the court and said that they were taking action against the responsible companies. He said they had imposed hefty fines on some companies and had issued orders of closure of some milk outlets. He said every responsible was being dealt in accordance with the law.
