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.
