Bhubaneswar, June 23: The Odisha STF on Wednesday arrested three persons, including the director of a medicine distributor company for allegedly selling spurious drugs in the state.
During the investigation, the STF came to know that that Max Relief Health Care is a dubious drug manufacturing company claiming to be manufacturing drugs in Solan, Himachal Pradesh. This company has been run by two persons, who were arrested by Mumbai Police earlier this month.
“It was revealed that ‘Medilloyd Medicament Private Limited’ conspired to procure Favimax tablets from ‘Max Relief Health Care’ at a very low price (Rs 65 per strip of 10 tablets) and had planned to sell them at a very high price 1,290 per strip of 10 tablets,” said STF.
“The accused persons have been forwarded to court today. Further, STF has also located and frozen more than Rs 50 lakh in the bank accounts of the accused and the above company,” said an official.
