Fake Drugs Seized In Rourkela; Probe Ordered Into Spurious Favipiravir Haul

Rourkela: A team led by drugs inspector Anjan Kumar Sahu conducted raids and seized 300 strips of fake drugs from three stores here on Saturday.

The raids took place following a tip-off that spurious drugs are being sold at Bharat Pharmaceutical in GT Lane, Medicare in Oram Pada and BR Pharmaceutical near Indo English School.

Sahu said it was found that the medicines were sold under the trade name Max Relief Healthcare Private Ltd, which is banned in the market.

The drugs have been sent for laboratory testing.

The State Health department, meanwhile, ordered a probe into the seizure of spurious Favipiravir anti-viral drugs from a chemist shop in Cuttack earlier.

Additional chief secretary, Health Department PK Mohapatra said the Drugs Controller and Police will conduct a joint probe, which will focus on the source of spurious drugs.
