This sample was found to be misbranded.
Petitioner had sought discharge on the ground that his licence was originally cancelled but then was restored by the Appellate Authority under Criminal Revision No. 1481 of 1999 
Section 30(3) of the Insecticide Act and when that was the position, then complaint could not lie.
It had been admitted in the written reply that the sample had been taken from sealed container and petitioner was a dealer. It was also admitted that his licence was cancelled but then restored.
Counsel for he petitioner has relied on judgments of this Court reported as Rajinder Kumar Vs. State of Punjab 2003(2) RCR (Crl.) 244 and Manesh Kumar Vs. State of Punjab through Insecticide Inspector 2005(2) RCR (Crl.) 46.
