Officials from the Directorate-General of Consumer Protection, Competition and Fraud Repression (CCF) seized a total of 30,900 litres of counterfeit sanitiser in the capital’s Dankgor district on July 22-23.
The first raid on July 22 came after CCF officials received a tip-off about the traffic of suspected counterfeit sanitiser. They went down to Street 371 and caught four Tuk-Tuks and a mini-truck transporting fake sanitiser and seized a total of 3,360 liters on the spot.
The sanitiser is being retained at the CCF while officials search for its source.
The second raid on July 23 was conducted in the presence of the municipal court prosecutor. CCF officials said the storehouse has been shut amid an ongoing investigation.
