As a start toward enforcing its laws against the storage and sale of fake medications and other similar crimes, the government of Odisha has increased searches. Shalini Pandit, the secretary of health and family welfare, gave orders to all field officers and enforcement teams to be on the lookout for drugs entering the country illegally and to step up their raids on any suspect locations, people, or businesses. Additionally, the cops were instructed to punish anyone found guilty harshly. A senior department official said that every strip in the stores is being reviewed, and any that are discovered to be questionable are being recalled.
“Extensive raids are being conducted on regular basis and such actions will continue,” the officer added.
Meanwhile, suspicious medications were confiscated from 6 locations in Cuttack, 1 location each in Sundargarh, Bargarh, and Sambalpur districts, 2 locations in Jharsuguda, and 1 location in Kendrapara. After the drugs from these locations were seized, cases were started. According to the information that was readily accessible, suspect medications were seized from the following locations: V R Agency, Puja Enterprises, Kyal Agency, Mahabirprasad Radheshyam, Shree Distributor, Sri M.H. in Cuttack district; Shyam Medical and Amit Agency in Sundaragarh; Ashok Medical Hall in Bargarh; Durga Agency in Sambalpur; and Sai Traders in Kendrapara. The general public has praised such operations and suggested that everyday enforcement of the law be carried out.
