Pesticides fail laboratory test, supplier booked

Jalandhar, June 12

The Agriculture Department has got an FIR lodged against a supplier after his samples failed the quality test at Pesticides Testing Laboratory in Chandigarh.

Chief Agriculture Officer Naazar Singh said the Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Department had busted a gang involved in supplying spurious pesticides to farmers by seizing 8 quintals of spurious Imdeclopreed 0.3 GR on a tip-off. He said the pesticide was being sold to farmers in the name of Indian Crop Science Meerut, UP. “They were being duped in the name of cheap pesticide, which was in reality a spurious one.” Naazar said the company was not recognised by the Agriculture Directorate, Punjab.

A case under Sections 420, 274 and 120B IPC and Section 7 of the Essential Commodities Act was filed. — TNS
