Soft drink manufacturers playing with lives of consumers: Insects found inside bottle risks common masses

AGARTALA, March 11 (TIWN): Controversy sparked off after some insects like substances found inside a soft drink bottle that a man purchased. The incident occurred at a market in Sonamura Sub Division. However no case has been lodged yet with the police station in regard of this.

One Bahrul Islam, a garment seller noticed an innumerable insects like substances floating into the bottle while sipping the cold drink standing nearby the shop from where he purchased the soft drink. Asked about the issue he said "It seems that giant companies have only focussed their eyes on their one-point programme -- make money. For that end they will even play with the public's health." Beside the shopkeeper said that a whole sale enterprise based from Melagarh Block is the regular distributor of the soft drinks to all the shops in the market.

However no complaint has been lodged with the police station so far after the incident took place.

It is to be mentioned here that earlier several allegations were raised against the soft drink manufacturers over the mixture of contaminated substances with the cold drinks. Several consumers across the state here have found contaminated substances floating inside the soft drink bottles that they purchase from the shopkeepers. However another such incidents have triggered a huge resentment among the consumers especially who are fond to drink soft drinks during the summer season. Therefore it would be good here to comment here that the soft drink manufacturers are simply playing with the lives of the consumers of the state as well as across the nation.
