Taking note of this, the team members issued instructions to the owners to maintain proper hygiene.

He added: "We have collected the samples of paneer, lemon pickle, curd, sauce and chicken from the hotel kitchen. We have also collected two samples of paneer and khoya barfi from a sweets shop of Urban Estate Phase-I market and another sample of chicken from a sweets shop in Choti Baradari."

Eight samples were collected by the officials and sent for testing to the labs. He added that to keep a tab on malpractices, including use of adulterated khoya and other eatables during the festive season, such raids would be conducted on a regular basis.
