ISLAMABAD, June 29: A mini-factory producing spurious soda water was discovered during a joint raid conducted by capital police and administration of Naz Market in G-9/1 sector, police said on Friday.

The raid led to the arrest of three persons besides the recovery of seven crates of soda water along with raw material used in making the unhygienic drink.
