D A RASHID
Srinagar, May 27: A local court here on Monday directed Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir to execute non-bailable warrants against seven accused in the infamous spurious drug scam. It also asked DIG Crime Jammu to produce three accused in Crime Branch custody before the court on next date of hearing on June 24.
Special Magistrate, TADA Court (designated Special Court to hear cases related to spurious and adulterated drugs) Muzaffar Iqbal Qureshi directed IGP Kashmir to constitute a team of police officers to execute arrest warrants against the accused Prem Prakash Barnwal of Uttar Pradesh (Director M/S Sanative Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd), Manjula Barnwal of UP (Director M/S Sanative Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd), Asok Kumar of Dehradun (Analytical Chemist M/S Sanative Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd), Manoj Kumar Agarwal of Patna (Director M/S Sanative Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd) and Rahul Kumar Singh of Dehradun.
After Special Public Prosecutor, Musavir Rafiq Joo submitted that three accused are in custody of Crime branch Jammu, the court directed DIG Crime Jammu to produce Akhil Gadoo of Tomal Colony Bohri Jammu, Amardeep Raina of Muthi Jammu, Ashok Kumar Raina of Muthi Jammu (C/O Proprietors of M/S Lifeline Pharmaco-Surgicals) before it on the next date of hearing.
The Court however granted interim bail to Surinder Sharma, Managing Director M/S Medley Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd, against personal and surety bonds of Rs 1 lakh each.
Sharma, who was present in the court was taken into judicial custody before he was granted interim bail till the next date of hearing. Sharma was represented by Advocate Manzoor Ahmad Dar.
Special Public Prosecutor will file objections to the main bail application before it will be disposed off on the next date of hearing.
Advocate Vishal Kumar today filed power of attorney on behalf of four accused - Arvind Billa, proprietor of M/S Affy Parenterals, Baddi Himachal Pradesh, Vilas Bhimarao Thorat of Himachal Pradesh (Manufacturing Chemist of M/S Affy Parenterals, Gullerwala), Suneet Bhardwaj of HP (Manufacturing Chemist M/S Affy Parenterals, Gullerwala), Bipin Kumar of HP (Analytical Chemist of M/S Affy Parenterals) and Sanjay Mishra (Manufacturing Chemist of M/S Affy Parenterals) which court took on record.
Kumar moved an application before the court seeking exemption of the accused from today’s proceedings citing the reason that due to blockade of Srinagar-Jammu highway the accused could not reach here to attend the court. The court allowed the application and directed the counsel to produce them on the next date of hearing.
The court had on April 24 ordered for arrest of 15 persons involved in spurious drug trade in Kashmir and had issued non-bailable warrant against them, directing the police authorities concerned to produce each of them before the court on next date of hearing.
