Whether report of public analyst is binding on accused to whom notice under S 11 of prevention of food adulteration Act is not sent?

The law requires notice under s. 11 to be given only to
the person from whom the sample was taken and none else.  If
that formality had been complied with and the report of  the
analyst  is  placed  on record at the  trial,  it  would  be
admissible against all the accused persons.
