Proprietor Dinesh Bansal, 38, belongs to Barnala, Punjab, and his manager, Sonu Saini, 32, hails from Panipat, Haryana.
A case was registered against Zannet Pharmaceuticals, that has its headquarters in Zirakpur, Punjab, under Sections 8, 21, 22 and 29 of the NDPS Act and Sections 420, 468, 471 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code on November 30, following a complaint by state drug controller Navneet Marwaha.
The complaint came after Marwaha and his team audited the company’s accounts and found suspicious sale transactions.
“Interrogation revealed that they prepared fake bills regarding sale of Nitrazapem, Codeine and Etizolam tablets to a Mandi-based wholesale drug dealer,” a press release by the CID said.
Investigations established that the dealer never received these drugs.
Further, Bansal was found using his private Toyota Innova car to transport drugs to Rajasthan and Punjab.
Also, his company’s wholesale drug licence was cancelled in Punjab in 2018-19 for violation of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act.
His office and warehouse at Zirakpur and Baddi have been raided, and inspections are still going on. All sales transactions of the company are being verified.
