Chargesheet filed against three government officials

The crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police has filed charge-sheet against three senior government officials for their ‘culpable role’ in the spurious drug scam that rocked the state earlier this year.

The crime branch on Tuesday filed the charge-sheet before a special court against the officials - Project Director of AIDS Control Society Madhu Khullar, chairperson of Purchase Committee-II of Government Medical College-Jammu Reva Gupta, and committee member Joginder Kumar - for their role in clearing fake and fictitious documents.

Khullar was then the Director of Health Services in Jammu, Gupta the administrator of Associated Hospitals, and Kumar the accounts officer of Jammu Government Medical College, a crime branch CB official said.

The accused were involved in clearing fake and fictitious document of drug supplier Lifeline Pharmaco Surgicals, which had resulted in supply of spurious drug ‘Maximizin-625 mg’ to the state Health Department, according to the charge-sheet.

The accused officials had misused their official position for extraneous considerations, it charged.
