Sikar-based wholesale drug firm WB Medicos was being run in the name of a jhuggi dweller, who is a firm employee.

Rs100 cr drug case

  • Zannet Pharma at Baddi, under the scanner of the state narcotic unit, had been trading with WB Medicos for a few years

A team led by DSP, State CID's Narcotics and Crime Control Unit (SNCCU), Dinesh Sharma, who is inquiring into the Rs 100-crore racket involving the sale of narcotic and psychotropic drugs through fake papers to fake firms, said the facts came to the fore at Sikar.

Wholesale drug firm Zannet Pharmaceuticals at Baddi, under the scanner of the SNCCU, had been trading with WB Medicos for a few years.

"The original owner and the jhuggi dweller employee are on the run as they are also wanted by Rajasthan's Drug Control Administration" said DSP Dinesh Sharma.

"The employee's brother, who received the notice for appearing before the SNCCU in Shimla on December 23, said his brother had been befooled by the owner and claimed that he was innocent and had no knowledge that a wholesale drug firm was being operated under his name," added Sharma.

"Zannet Pharmaceuticals' sister concern at Karnal has also been found involved in similar case. An intimidation was sent to the drug inspector at Karnal about the case registered at Baddi and, when inquired by the officials, similar findings came to the fore following which an FIR has been registered at Karnal," said the official.

The Rs 100-crore narcotic and psychotropic drug racket is not only getting murkier as the investigations progress, but it also seems the racket is much deeper as drugs worth crores were diverted to the illegal markets in Punjab, Rajasthan, UP, etc.

The officials also raided the Barnala-based pharma unit, owned by Dinesh Bansal, and collected papers which were being examined now.
