A man was imprisoned for 6 months for using toilet cleaner while preparing Pani Puri in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The man was proven guilty for adulteration after samples of his pani puri water were sent for lab testing and found oxalic acid which is used in toilet cleaners.
The residents were weary of the man’s pani puri after they realized it tasted different than normal. The court took action after a complaint was filed by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation against the vendor Chetan Nanji Marvadi in a special court. Despite being a special court, it took 7 years for the verdict of the court to be announced.
