New Delhi, May 8

The Delhi Police have transferred the case of alleged black-marketing and hoarding of oxygen concentrators, in which over 500 machines were seized, to the Crime Branch and have arrested CEO of Matrix Cellular Services Gourav Khanna, officials said today.

However, Matrix Cellular Services has moved the Delhi High Court, demanding the seized goods be returned “in the backdrop of an ill-conceived and erroneous investigation” and claimed it was “a responsible corporate citizen for 25 years in the service of people”. On Friday, the police had claimed to have recovered 105 oxygen concentrators during raids at two upscale restaurants in the Khan Market area here and arrested one person. The police had on Thursday recovered 419 oxygen concentrators during raids at a restaurant and a farmhouse in south Delhi and arrested four men. A senior police officer said the case of alleged hoarding of 524 oxygen concentrators had been transferred to the Delhi Police Crime Branch.
