Hyderabad: Cracked Down on Spurious Mehndi! Toxic Cones Seized, Shakil Industries in Crosshairs

Hyderabad, Telangana: In a swift crackdown, the Drugs Control Administration (DCA) Telangana has shut down a spurious mehendi cone manufacturing unit operating illegally in Mehdipatnam. Acting on intelligence, officials raided Shakil Industries and seized a massive stock of ‘Special Karachi Mehndi Cones’ found to contain the harmful synthetic dye, picramic acid.

The raid was triggered by Drugs Inspector J. Kiran Kumar, who received reports of a suspicious mehendi product circulating in the market. After identifying Shakil Industries as the manufacturer, he sent samples for lab testing. The results confirmed the presence of picramic acid, a banned substance unsuitable for henna cones according to Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) regulations.
