The firm showed its registered address at Solan in Himachal Pradesh, but no firm by that name was found. Mukherjee through his accomplices provided fake medicines to a firm named Aarmed Formulation in Prahladnagar.
The FIR mentions that Mukherjee supplied the fake medicine despite knowing that it may prove fatal to Covid patients. He was booked for attempt to culpable homicide along with other charges.
An inquiry by Food and Drugs Administration revealed that Mukherjee was selling drugs to wholesalers in the state without licence to do so. All states were alerted to stop using this drug.
On May 30, Mukherjee, appeared before FDCA but carried no documents linked to production and sale of drugs. At first glance, the photocopy of a licence that he produced appeared fake. He was handed over to Samta Nagar police station in Mumbai where an FIR was registered and he was arrested on June 7.
