Nagpur’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) registered an FIR against two shop owners, after recovering illegal stock of Point Five Ki Goli? or Didi Ki Goli? tablets during a raid. 

 

Didi Ki Goli? is the code word for Alprazolam 0.5 tablets, which are consumed in form of anti-anxiety drugs. The medicine is very cheap, in comparison to other psychotropic or narcotics medicines. Since lockdown, there has been a sudden rise in illegal trade of this drug in Nagpur and other districts of Vidarbha. According to reports, some people even tried to commit suicide after consumption of this illegal drug.

 

The raid was conducted at Akash Medical Stores in Pension Nagar and Satish Medical Stores near Trimurti Nagar.

 

FDA officials seized 10 strips of 15 Alprazolam 0.5 tables each, at Akash Medical Stores, and registered a case for deceiving and playing with the health of people under relevant sections of Drugs and Cosmetic Act 1940, and sections 175 (Omission to produce document to public), 177 (Furnishing false information), 188 (Disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), and 278 (Making atmosphere noxious to health) of Indian Penal Code (IPC).

 

FDA also seized 139 strips of Atis 0.5 tablets at Satish Medical Stores, and registered an offence against store owner Satish Amrutrao Dange, the drug seller Ajit Amrutrao Dange and Registered Pharmacist Jyotsna Ramkete, at Pratap Nagar Police Station.

Some unknown miscreants in Nagpur vandalised Bishop Cotton School situated on VIP in Dharampeth during the weekend. Apart from the broken plant pots and damaged earthing wires, empty alcohol bottles could also be seen thrown on the floor of the classrooms.


Prima facie it seems some drunkards might have used the school as their hang out place to consume alcohol as it was a weekend and the school was closed. However, nothing could be ascertained as of now; the investigation on the same is on. 


When Nation Next spoke to Sonia Singh, Principal at Bishop Cotton School, she told us, What kind of a mentality is this Such people should at least spare kids. It’s so disheartening to see something like this. Class 10 students had their board exams today; unfortunately, we couldn’t indulge them much.”

Singh added, “All the pots have been broken, the earthing wires for the newly installed water cooler for kids has also been damaged.”

However, Singh, who filed an FIR at Sitabuld Police Station today, said, this wasn’t the first such incident; even during lockdown, some miscreants had stolen printers and other property of the school.
