Chandigarh, October 14

A local court has framed charges against an accused, Arun, who was arrested allegedly with 20 injections of liposomal amphotericin, which is used to treat black fungus.

The charges have been framed against the accused for the offences under Section 420 of the IPC and Section 27 of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act.

The police arrested the accused on June 4, 2021, from Sector 18 here after registering an FIR against him under Section 420 of the IPC, Section 7 of the Essential Commodities Act and Section 27 of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act at the Sector 19 police station.

The FIR was registered on the complaint of a Sub-Inspector, who said he received a tip-off that the accused was planning to meet some customers for selling the injections at higher rates without any licence in Sector 18, Chandigarh.

After getting information, a police team reached near the Tagore Theatre in Sector 18. They found a person holding a packet in his hands. During his search, 20 injections of liposomal amphotericin were recovered from his possession. The police said the injections were found in two packets, which were covered with ice. The accused allegedly failed to produce any valid licence for injections.

The police submitted a challan against the accused. The court, while framing the charges, fixed November 11 as the next hearing for the prosecution evidence.

The counsel for the accused claimed that the accused had been falsely implicated in the case as he had valid slips for the procurement of medicines issued by the Punjab health authorities. — TNS
