Anganwadi teachers resell milk, eggs meant for children; arrested

Hyderabad: Five Anganwadi teachers were arrested by the Mancherial police in Chennur, Mancherial district, for illegal reselling of Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) products.

The ICDS product which is meant for school children was being sold in the open market. The teachers were reselling milk and eggs allotted to an Anganwadi centre to bakeries, restaurants, and sweet shops.
