Fake Drug Factory Busted in Orissa
A spurious medicine manufacturing unit was busted in Orissa's Bolangir district and fake drugs worth over Rs.20 million were seized, police said Saturday.

A police team raided a factory owned by Sankarlal Agarwal at Kantabanji town, over 400 km from here, late Friday and seized the fake drugs, district police chief Himansu Kumar Lal who led the team, told IANS.

Agarwal confessed that he supplied the fake medicines to the neighbouring states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, apart from places in Orissa, he said.

Lal said that three shops in Bolangir to which Agarwal supplied medicines had already been sealed.

The spurious medicines manufactured by Agarwal included paracetamol, the common anti-fever and pain-relieving drug, the official added.
