Gurugram, November 21

The CM flying squad on Saturday busted a fake diagnostic lab allegedly providing fraudulent a Covid report at mere Rs 1,200.

Situated at Saini Khera village, ‘Medicartz’ lab would provide “desired” Covid reports. Police have nabbed two of its managers, identified Anirban, a resident of Sector 30, and Pariman Rai of Saini Khera. Both of them hail from West Bengal and have reportedly admitted to handing out Covid reports.

The investigation so far has revealed seven such instances where two people used Covid negative certificate to travel abroad.

In the evening, the squad got a tip-off and sent a decoy customer who asked for report within an hour of giving sample. He was given a negative report, but when he asked for a positive report the same was given within half-an-hour. The flying squad raided the lab and caught the two red-handed.

Inspector Suresh Chand, head of the raiding team, said they had got fake IDs created and were running the racket for the past two months. An FIR has been registered against the duo at Sector 40 police station.
