The owner of the company, Sayed Shafiq Aman, whose father, Sayed Ali Aman, is incidentally BJP's Raipur District Minority Cell's Vice President, said that the allegations were false and that his company took the utmost care in packaging water.

"It's a conspiracy against me. When I was shown the bottle, its seal was broken," he added.

According to BBC, all the water bottles have been recalled. The state government has also ordered a check on mineral water bottles across the state.

Shekar | 6 years ago | Reply I am surprised that such trivial news from India has been published in this Pak online news site. In the case of Indian media, unless and until the news from other countries has created a worldwide sensation, you rarely find it publicized. I am from India and believe me, the snake fiasco is nothing. We have earthworms in milk (to increase density), rats in coke, worms in chocolates, lizards in rice and so on. All this is quite common here. What I am trying to say is that such incidents are so common that it doesnt even qualify for being a news item. I am not surprised about the snake in the bottle. On the contrary, I am surprised that the story got space in a Pak news site. Wow...thats news.
