The DCA officials have seized the illegally stocked drugs intended for sale at three separate locations in Vepur village, Hanwada mandal of Mahabubnagar district, Jangaon in Jangaon district and Film Nagar in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad.

According to the press release by the DCA, during the special raids at the unlicensed clinics by quacks, stocks worth a total of Rs. 2.56 lakhs were seized.

DCA officials detected several ‘higher generation’ antibiotics at the clinics during the raids as well.

The DCA stated that the indiscriminate sale of antibiotics, by unqualified persons may have disastrous consequences on the health of rural public, including emergence of ‘antimicrobial resistance’.

DCA officials also found steroids at the quack clinics, said V B Kamalasan Reddy, Drug Control Administration director general.
