How are anti-cancer drugs available without licence: Court


How are high potency anti-cancer drugs easily available in the market without any licence or bill, putting people’s lives at risk, a special court has wondered, expressing serious concern.

The issue cropped up when a pharma dealer, who did not have a licence and from whom such drugs worth over Rs 50 lakh were allegedly recovered, approached the court seeking anticipatory bail.

The court said it was matter of serious concern that such drugs were freely available, while also causing loss of revenue to the state exchequer.

“It is hard to believe that such toxic/high potency anti- cancer drugs can be sold or purchased freely without any license or invoices in the open market, putting the lives of citizens at risk, as also causing loss of revenue to the state exchequer,” the court said.
