Jajpur: A duplicate sauce manufacturing unit has been busted at Kundal under Badchana police limits in the district on Saturday.
Acting on a tip-off, a joint team of police and administrative officials from Darpan Tehsil carried out a raid at the illegal factory and seized some bottles, machines used to prepare the sauce, raw materials, artificial colour and essence. The food safety licence of the unit is being examined, police said.
