Madhya Pradesh government informs SC about revoking doctor's detention under NSA, wife's plea disposed
The state government said that following its decision, the district magistrate wrote to the Jail Superintendent of Central Jail at Indore and the doctor was subsequently released.
While denying relief to him, Additional Sessions Judge Ravinder Bedi said that the offences are grave in nature and entail severe punishment.
The inspection was based on a complaint filed by a patient’s attendant that the pharmacy staff demanded him to pay Rs 5,000 for one Remdesivir (COVIFOR) vial, while the MRP is Rs 3,500.
For the period from April 21 to April 30, a total of 26,500 Remdesivir injections have been allocated to Rajasthan by the Centre, Health Minister Raghu Sharma said in a statement.
Acting on a tip-off, a crime branch team nabbed the four people from different areas here in Gujarat on Saturday and recovered three vials of the key anti-viral drug from them.
Remdesivir injections are currently in high demand as the drug is used in the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
The three persons were arrested on Thursday in a joint operation by the Kanpur Police and the STF after a tip-off regarding black marketing of Remdesivir injections, the official said.
According to the Chief Minister's Office (CMO), the officers of the Health Department left for Ahmedabad to get 25000 Remedisver injections at 10.40 am today.
