Police seized fake pesticides worth around Rs 1 crore from a house in the Bhadaninagar police outpost area, about 60 km from state capital Ranchi.

“The man who was allegedly running the illegal factory has been arrested,” Patratu Sub-Divisional police officer Birendra Kumar Chaudhary said.

A Mumbai-based company had lodged a complaint that counterfeit pesticides are being packed in Ramgarh district and sold in the name of its brand in markets, which is causing a huge loss to the entity as well as farmers.
