Drug Control Dept Moves HC Against Gautam Gambhir, AAP MLAs for ‘Illegally’ Stocking Meds, Oxygen

Gautam Gambhir organised a Covid camp during the second wave of the pandemic in which Covid-19 medicines and medical oxygen were distributed. Several people have filed a petition against the camps organised by Gambhir and AAP MLAs Praveen Kumar and Imran Hussain and said that these camps were illegal as they did not possess the license to sell this drug.
