DRAP launches campaign against sale of unregistered, spurious drugs

ISLAMABAD: Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) has launched operation against sellers of unregistered and spurious drugs in different cities.

A team of drug inspectors of DRAP raided a distributor Madina Medicine Co. in Multan for selling unregistered and spurious drugs, DRAP’s press release said.

A DRAP team also recovered unregistered drugs, Leena Tablets, manufactured by M/s Everest Pharma, Islamabad.

The drugs were seized and premises was sealed, for storing and selling unregistered drugs.

In another raid a banned sex drug was recovered from pharma distributors in Multan. A case has been registered and investigation has been started to unearth the culprits involved in manufacturing and sale of unregistered, spurious and fake drugs.

The government is continuing its drive against spurious drugs and illegal manufacturing and will not leave such heinous crimes against the public safety and interest unpunished, press release said.

DRAP raid has again exposed the mafia involved in such illegal crimes while trying to mislead and distract media, public and government institutions through various press releases and press conferences with the objective to blackmail DRAP and Ministry of National Health Services and pressurize them to withdraw cases against corruption of these elements.

The Everest Pharma is already in various litigation cases due to non-compliance of the Rules under Drug Act 1976 and DRAP ACT 2012 and is owned by Chaudhary Usman, claiming to be chairman of so called Young Pharmacist Association that runs media campaigns to protect them.

This mafia not only shows total disrespect to law of land,but also makes mockery of the government institutions.

Chaudhary Usman threatens government officials and claims to be brother-in-law of a deputy inspector general of police in Punjab and threatens regulators of dire consequences and media trials.
