LHC annoyed over non-reply from milk supplying Cos Lahore High Court Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday took strict notice of non-submission of replies from packed-milk supplying companies and warned them of Rs50,000 fine if they failed in responding to the court by next date of hearing in a petition against supply of adulterated milk. Earlier, the petitioner Barrister Zafarullah Khan of Watan Party Pakistan stated before the court that the court should not defer the case beyond December 31 as the local government set-up, which was bearing expense of milk samples examination, would stand dissolved on the said date. At this the judge said the multinational milk supplying companies would be ordered to bear the same expense and adjourned further hearing of the petition till December 31. Barrister Zafar in his petition submitted that 80 per cent milk supplied to the market was poisonous and major source of death. He said out of 19,718 samples of milk collected by the food department in the last five years, almost 17,529 samples were found adulterated. This means that all the milk consumed by the Lahorites was almost 80 per cent adulterated or contaminated milk and virtually poisonous. He further said that melamine was a plastic that was added in milk to boost protein level but it causes renal failure. He pointed out that in China three persons were hanged to death after they were found guilty of adding melamine in milk. He requested the court to take action against respondent companies who were supplying health hazard milk causing great loss to the masses especially children.
