As many as 35 lakh tablets and two quintals of tramadol powder were seized by the police during a raid conducted on Orison Pharmaceutical, Kala Amb, today, said SP, Sirmaur, Khushal Sharma.
The police registered a case of cheating, forgery, criminal conspiracy and under the NDPS Act against the firm last evening. The Punjab Police raided the company on May 30 and irregularities were found in its record pertaining to marketing of tramadol tablets.
The assistant drugs controller, Nahan, had ordered it to stop production after a show-cause notice issued to the management. The stock was also freezed.
Since tramadol is used as an intoxicant, its diversion was a cause for concern for the authorities. The Ajnala police had seized 4,500 tablets in Punjab.
Police sources said the tablet Celcidal-100 SR seized from Punjab was marketed by PP Pharma, A-1 Park Plaza, Bandra, Mumbai, while another tablet Calvidol-100 SR, which also contains tramadol, was found marketed by New Care Healthcare, Ahmedabad.
Enquiries by the police revealed that there was no such firm in Ahmedabad and Bandra in Mumbai. The Orison Pharma management, it seems, had been marketing their products through fake firms, said SP, Sirmaur, Khushal Sharma.
“Since these intoxicants were seized by the Punjab Police, it appears that its owner Rakesh Goyal had been selling it through fake marketing firms. This was a violation of the licence issued under the NDPS Act,” added Sharma.
