India-bound Dabur products confiscated by Nepal

Kathmandu: Nepalese authorities on Sunday confiscated 90 cargo containers loaded with products of Dabur Nepal bound for India from the Sirsiya dry port in Birgunj district.

Birgunj is a major industrial city of Nepal where Dabur Nepal – a subsidiary of Dabur India – has its production unit.

A team of anti-graft body, Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), confiscated the containers and begun an investigation after a tip-off that 24 containers allegedly had packaged juice past sell-by dates.

Commission Deputy Superintendent of Police Himalaya Shrestha said the CIAA was looking into the quality and expiry dates of the seized products.

“Details can be divulged when we complete our investigation,” Shrestha added.

Dabur’s clearing agent Laxmi Narayan Sharma told the media that the CIAA had confiscated 90 containers that were meant for export by the rail route to India.

Meanwhile, another CIAA team reached Dabur Nepal factory in Tokani, Rampur, to take stock of products there.

Both the CIAA and Dabur were yet to state their respective positions on the issue on Sunday afternoon. (ians)
