The Allahabad High Court recently took suo moto cognizance of alleged sale of adulterated namkeens (savoury snacks). The Court has directed its Registry to register a Public Interest Litigation case over the same.

A Bench comprising of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Samit Gopal, took action after a report relating to rejected "namkeens" of branded companies procured in the name of cattle feed was brought to the High Court's knowledge. The report was published by Amar Ujala Network.

Looking to the contents of the report, we deem it appropriate to take cognizance of the alleged adulteration in the food products.
