Allegation of politicians distributing meds, oxygen: Delhi HC asks police to look into issue

-


New Delhi, May 4 (ILNS): The Delhi High Court today ordered Delhi Police to look into a complaint that political leaders have been hoarding essential drugs and even oxygen and distributing to the public, with no licence to do so.


It was alleged by Advocate Virag Gupta that in Maharashtra and other states, medicine and equipment are being distributed from political party houses, when there is no medicine available in hospitals.

The Bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli said it was not immediately interested in what was happening in other states and was concentrating on Delhi only.


At that, Mr Gupta said: “My prayer is limited to Delhi only. Those who are admitting that they are doing it in bulk quantity, should be asked. And the police may be directed.”


Justice Sanghi said the Bench was not inclined to order a CBI enquiry in this at the moment and the order was to submit required documents.

“However, in relation to the instances falling within the jurisdiction of this court, we allow the petitioner to place the copy to the concerned officer, who shall examine the same.” A notice was issued to Delhi Police. ILNS\KR\SJ\RJ
