After reports of black marketing of fake Remdesivir injections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajya Sabha MP and Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha has written to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Chouhan demanding the state government compensate the patients and their families from these merchants of death.

In the letter, Tankha raised questions about the supply of surplus Remdesivir injection in the state. He said when districts like Indore, Gwalior, Bhopal, Jabalpur among others were being given a limited supply of 100 to 500 injections by the state government, how could government and private hospitals get them in such large numbers? He wondered if the fake injections were coming in from manufacturing units in Gujarat and being supplied to the hospitals in surplus.

He said the state health minister should divulge full information about the fake Remdesivir racket with full transparency and sought strict action, such as civil and criminal cases, against the black marketers. Tankha implored Chouhan to even make a new law if that was required.

“It is a matter of serious concern, who is answerable for the deaths of several Covid deaths due to fake medicines. Every patient or family has the right to compensation from these merchants of deaths,” Tankha said in his letter. 

He also demanded CBI inquiry into the fake Remdesivir racket operating across India, warning that he would move court if they failed to do so. Tankha had tweeted that the CBI should probe this multi-state scam. “3,000 such injections reached Indore, 3,500 reached Jabalpur. Who all were administered these injections? If the CBI does not investigate, we will go to court.”
