KFC Outlet Ordered Closed in India: The chief minister of New Delhi ordered the restaurant chain KFC to close its outlet in the Indian capital, saying food samples revealed the use of additives that were not permitted. KFC, a subsidiary of PepsiCo Restaurant International, has been in trouble since it opened its first restaurant in Bangalore in south India. The second outlet, in New Delhi, opened two weeks ago amid protests by right-wing nationalists. Delhi Chief Minister Madan Lal Khurana has told municipal authorities to take steps to cancel KFC’s existing licenses and deny permission to operate more restaurants in the state. “Our product remains the safest and best chicken available to the Indian consumers,” said Sandeep Kohli, managing director of KFC’s Indian operations. “We feel that our license is valid, our product is tasty and safe and that we have viable and legitimate business operations in India.”
