Jammu, June 29: Police on Thursday said that no raids were carried out at the Prem sweet shop in Kud, Samrulli, and Jammu and the reports about tins of pig fat being seized from there are baseless.
“No raids were carried out anywhere. Neither have we seized any tins of pig fat from the Prem sweet shop in Kud, Samrulli and Jammu,” said Additional Superintendent of Police Udhampur Mohammad Feisel Qureshi.
Some social media groups claimed that 40 tins of pig fat were seized from Prem sweet shop has gone viral on the social media.
The proprietor of the Prem sweet shop Prithivi Raj Khajuria said that in 2014 also some miscreants had used social media to hit his business and had spread false rumours. “This is our family business which was established by my late grandfather Pandit Loknath Khajuria. Besides Kud, we have established our branches in Samrulli, Udhampur, and Jammu but a few people are hell-bent upon ruining my business. During all these years our quality has been praised by one and all and we have worked very hard to establish this business,” he added. (GNS)
