The operation was a result of public tip-off and intelligence by the Halal Food Control Division.

The enforcement officers conducted the raid at 10.57am and found a vehicle with two individuals carrying raw poultry products stored in the back of the vehicle.

The meat was confiscated and the case handed over to RCED.
