Four people, including three shopkeepers and a supplier, were arrested for selling spurious ghee using the packing of a well-known brand. The arrests were made after police checked three shops in Sector 70 and found that the ghee was prepared using a chemical which is not fit for human consumption.

The accused have been identified as Vijay Sachdev, owner of Sachdev Supermart; Sandeep Kumar of Agarwal Supermart; Taranjit Singh of Sant departmental store and supplier Akash Kumar, a resident of Mataur village.
