Food retailers in Haldwani District, Uttarakhand were found selling plastic rice. It might look very similar to regular rice but in reality, it’s poison on your plate.

People who were tricked into buying the adulterated rice made a plastic ball out of it. The ‘rice ball’ bounces off like any other plastic ball and people actually used it to play.
