Business, Health, News, Politic, World Comments Off 4

The Supreme Court on Monday said it would not stop the prosecution of BJP MP Gautam Gambhir – in connection with politicians hoarding medicines during the second wave of Covid cases – noting it “cannot allow a group to distribute medicines while people run helter-skelter.

The court, however, said Mr Gambhir, an ex-cricketer who entered politics ahead of the 2019 election, could approach the Delhi High Court for relief since that court had not yet passed it order. In May the High Court came down heavily on the drug controller for allowing Mr Gambhir to procure large quantities of Fabiflu, which had been indicated for use in some COVID-19 cases.

An irked court said the tendency to take advantage of a situation, such as the devastating tragedy wrought by the second wave of the pandemic, to appear as saviours had to be denounced.
