Under fire for allegedly employing children at a unit in Raipur, biscuit maker Parle-G Sunday said the Chhattisgarh facility, from where the minors were rescued, was operated by a third-party contractor.
Makers of the popular biscuit brand are investigating the matter and assured 'concrete action', a day after a storm erupted against the company for allegedly employing child labourers.
Acting on a specific tip-off, a government task force on child labour raided a facility in Raipur Friday and rescued 26 children from the plant which manufactured Parle G products.
