Sale of seasonal summer fruits ripened with harmful chemical

Battery-run three-wheelers have been plying the Dhaka city roads for about a year without approval of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority and Dhaka City Corporation.

Adulterated food items continue selling in the Dhaka city in the absence of proper monitoring by the agencies concerned, posing serious threat to public health.
A large number of food shops, sweetmeat houses, restaurants and producers of such foods are selling adulterated items under the very nose of lawmen, said Dhaka City Corporation officials concerned.
