Ujjain : Keeping in view the festivals of Diwali, a team of the Food and Drugs department along with civil supplies department conducted surprise raids at various places in the city today.

The raids were conducted at various sweet shops and shops selling other eatables in the town under a special drive launched to check the hygiene and quality of the eatables, particularly sweets, ahead of the festivals.

A team lead by SDM Rohan Saksena raided over 10 sweet shops on Dewas gate area, Malipura market and Old City areas.

During the raids, the workers at majority of the sweet shops were found preparing sweets without wearing gloves.

Taking notice of this, the team members issued instructions to the owners of sweet shops to maintain hygiene while preparing sweets. Officers strictly instructed

the shopkeepers to provide gloves to the workers preparing sweets to avoid contamination of the eatables.

The team also destroyed sweets kept in unhygienic conditions.

However, no sample was taken from any shop during the raid and the shopkeepers were left with warning. 8 cylinders were also seized during the raid.
