"After initiating the investigation, it was found that the video was from a local hotel named Chand in the Khyala area. The two men have been identified as Sabi Anwar and Ibrahim, both natives of Kishanganj in Bihar. Ibrahim was spitting on the dough.
"We have registered a case under relevant sections and arrested both the accused. We have also filed a case against the owner of the hotel named Aamir for running the eatery without permission," a senior police officer said.
A similar incident was reported in Meerut last month. According to reports, a man was arrested in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut after he was caught on camera spitting on the dough while preparing 'rotis' at a wedding function.
