BHUBANESWAR: Taking suo motu cognisance from media reports, the  State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) on Friday sought a status report within three weeks from the State Government on the quality of milk supplied by it to the people through the Odisha Milk Federation.  The SHRC’s direction came two days after the Fisheries and Animal Resource Development (FARD) Department sought information from the Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on the source of milk collected by it from the state.
