The district administration in Tehsil Ghazi and Haripur Friday has taken strong measures to ensure the quality of food products and combat illegal practices in various markets.
Assistant Commissioner Ghazi inspected milk shops in the region, collaborating with the Halal Food and Livestock Department. The joint operation led to the identification of multiple shops involved in the sale of adulterated milk.
As a result, heavy fines were imposed on several offenders, and two shops were sealed as a consequence of their actions.
Prior to these operations, an important meeting was also held with engineers, Tehsil Municipal Administrations (TMAs), Building Inspectors, and Assistant Building Inspectors to address the issue of illegal housing societies in Tehsil Ghazi.
