Remdesivir racket sold Covishield since March | Noida News


Noida: The gang behind the alleged black marketing of the Remdesivir injection was also selling Covishield vaccine on various Facebook groups since March, evidence with TOI suggests.
Screenshots of different Facebook pages of these online groups — like Pharma Franchisee and Medical Goods India — clearly show how the accused, Rachit Ghai, had been selling doses of 5 ml Covishield vaccine much before he was caught.
In one of the screenshots of the Facebook page, Medical Goods India, with over 16,000 members, Rachit posted on March 18 that Covishield was available for sale.
In another screenshot, the accused posted on April 1 about the availability of the vaccine.
Further, it has come to fore that he was in possession of not only the Hetero Healthcare-made Remdesivir injection but also the ones produced by Dr Reddy’s.
In a Facebook post on April 9 on the Pharma Franchisee page, Ghai posted a picture of the injection saying that the same was “available” and to get it, one needed to call or WhatsApp on 9999961910.
In response to this post, several Facebook users like Ashish Jain have replied saying that he needs 50 vials of the injection, asking for the rates.
Sector 20 SHO Munish Chauhan said that they will be sending a team to Chandigarh to proceed further in the investigation.
“The Faridabad police have been apprised of the involvement of a main agent from Haryana who had been in touch with Rachit and had used his sources to get the Remdesivir injection.” DCP (crime) Abhishek Singh said that if any such inputs are available, they can be included in the investigation.
