Safe Food Court has issued arrest warrant against Pran's MD Ahsan Khan Chowdhury in a case filed for producing low quality food products.

On Sunday, Dhaka City Corporation court’s special Metropolitan Magistrate Mehedi Pavel Suite issued the arrest warrant. However, during the hearing of the case, MD Ahsan Khan was not present.

His lawyers said he was ill, so could not appear before the court.

Dhaka South City Corporation's Safe Food Inspector Kamrul Hasan confirmed the matter.

Earlier, the safe food authority filed a case against Pran’s low quality food product including Pran's Ghee, Lachcha Semai and Turmeric powder. The next hearing of the case was fixed on July 30.

Meanwhile, the court did not take into account the issue of defendant’s absence due to illness during today's hearing.

In addition, the safe food authority filed case against manufacturers of 52 substandard products on May 22, as they didn’t move away those products from the market despite the High Court’s order.
