As Corona cases increases in country black marketing , fake injection cases are increased in rapid speed. Same cases reported here regarding the shortage of anti-viral drug Remdesivir. Some people are taking advantage of this vulnerable situation to dig others’ pockets. Recently an engineering graduate from Andhra Pradesh was arrested by the Cyberabad police as he was indulging in the illegal selling of the Remdesivir drug. The accused was identified as Dandaboina Narsimulu of the Kadapa district.
Here it is to be noted that the Cyberabad police were tipped off by someone after which they raided Road no, 1, KPHB colony. Narsimulu tried to flee the scene but in vain as the police finally caught him. He was later taken to the station for questioning. Narsimulu confessed that he was able to get Remdesivir from his friend in Anantapur. Although he received it for Rs 3,490, he was trying to sell them at Rs 28,000 each. The seized drugs were given to medical officials.
However, This is not the first time that something like this has happened. On May 8, a techie was arrested on suspicion of selling Remdesivir injections on the black market. The Hyderabad Task Force apprehended the perpetrator, Akula Mehul Kumar, 26, in Secunderabad's Pan Bazaar and confiscated four Remdesivir vials, a bike, and a cellphone. He bought each vial for about Rs 4,000 and sold them for nearly Rs 35,000.
