HT Ludhiana Live - - City - HT Live Correspondent [email protected]­dus­tan­times.com LUD­HI­ANA:

The health de­part­ment on Wed­nes­day con­ducted a raid at a med­i­cal store in Pindi street and seized huge amounts of habit form­ing tablets and cap­sules.

Dur­ing the raid, a team of the heath de­part­ment re­cov­ered 1 lakh tablets of lo­motil, 23,160 cap­sules of Par­von Spas and 240 bot­tles of Rex­coff cough syrups.

Sukhveer Chand, drug in­spec­tor, said, “The re­cov­ered drugs cost around Rs 2. 65 lakh.”

Chand said for sell­ing such habit-form­ing drugs, chemists needed a li­cence and were re­quired to main­tain a stock reg­is­ter.

“How­ever, the shop that we raided to­day had the li­cence, but failed to pro­duce bills of the drugs.”
