June 22, 2020

LARKANA:Three accused Suhail Shaikh, Baqaur Rahman Chandio and Sadam Chandio were produced before the court of 1st Civil Judge and Judicial Magistrate in the government medicine sale in the city on Monday.

The Civil Lines police had arrested the accused some days back and claimed that they were involved in theft and sale of government medicines in the open market. The court granted the police a three-day remand.

The ASP told the media that some mafia is involved in the sale of government medicines in the market which are meant for free distribution among the poor poverty-stricken ailing people. He said Civil Lines police recovered Rs150,000,000 and Dari police confiscated Rs50,000,000 worth government medicines and arrested three persons Suhail Shaikh, Baqaur Rahman Chandio and Sadam Chandio who were produced before the court which granted them three day’s remand.

He said whosoever was found involved in the sale of government property would not be spared irrespective of his influence. ASP claimed that there is no political pressure on them adding a transparent probe would be conducted and the involved mafia would not only be exposed but taken to task.

Meanwhile, FIR No. 53/202 was lodged at Civil Lines police station on 16.6.2020 and another FIR No. 36/2020 was registered at Dari police station of Larkana on 21.6.2020 under sections 380, 411, 403, 420 and 34 PPC under which a huge quantity of government medicines have been shown as having been recovered from private warehouses located on VIP Road and Murad Wahan locality respectively.

On the other hand, one of the members of the two-member committee constituted by Director-General, Health Services, Sindh, Hyderabad, Dr. Altaf Hussain Jokhio, has declined to become a member of the inquiry committee as the incharge DHO Larkana belongs to his hometown. He has requested the DGHSS through a letter to include any other senior officer in the committee.

Credible sources further said that a new three-member inquiry committee has now been constituted by DGHSS to thoroughly investigate the theft notification of which is expected later tonight.
