The sale was continued in five Indian states. Lalit Sharma, a lawyer from Jaipur lodged the complaint yesterday.

The FIR has been registered under sections 420 (cheating), 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 272 (adulteration of food or drink intended for sale), 273 (sale of noxious food or drink) of the IPC and sections 59 and 63 of the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006.

The ban on Maggi was lifted on 19th October 2015.
