The police arrested Charan Singh in R.K. Hospital, Gurgaon, for supplying fake swine flu medicines. Few people informed the police that they were cheated for swine flu medicines.
Police said they were investigating the case further as Charan Singh employed nearly half a dozen women to give the medicines to people and charged Rs.40 for children and Rs.60 for an adult.
"The health department will establish the reality of the recovered medicines, but certainly it was not for prevention and cure of swine flu," a police official said.
Swine flu has cost the lives of 700 victims since mid-December. Health authorities have launched campaigns in radio and television to caution the public about the precautions to be taken for swine flu.
