Officials of the District Health Department today destroyed 10 kg of insect-infested sweets at a shop in Nabha town of the district.

During a raid, the food safety officer (FSO) destroyed 10 kg of ‘rasgullas’ on the spot. However, the district health officer (DHO), issued a warning to the shopkeeper for selling such sweets.
