PESHAWAR: In a late-night operation on Monday, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Food Safety and Halal Food Authority clamped down on milk adulteration in Dera Ismail Khan.

According to the details, a checkpoint was established at Qureshi Mor to scrutinize milk tankers coming from Punjab and other districts.

A spokesperson for the Food Authority detailed that during the raid, samples from various milk supply vehicles were collected and tested immediately using a mobile food testing laboratory.
