The Bombay High Court, Nagpur Bench consisting of Justice Sunil Shukre and Justice Modak issued immediate directions in Suo Moto PIL NO:-04/2020 to state government to supply 10,000 Remdesivir Injections to Nagpur City on 19-04-2021 in urgently held hearing today on an application filed by Dr. Shishir Ramchandra Kolhe.

The counsel for Dr. Kolhe {Applicant} has argued that the state government has made discriminatory allocation of Remdesivir Injection to the patients in Nagpur. On 13-04-2021, 18-04-2021 there was no supply of Remdisivir Injection in Nagpur.


It was argued that state government is deliberately not supplying the life saving Injection in Nagpur. Thane District Collector on 16-04-2021 has issued 5328 injections for 2664 covid beds and ratio is two Remdesivir Injections for one patient, where as on same day Nagpur Collector has issued 3326 Remdesivir Injections for 8250 beds.

According to the state government treatment protocol six injections are required to be given to every patient.

Adv. Mandlekar also argued that it is the responsibility of the state government to protect the life of citizens u/a 47 and 21 of Constitution of India and hence State Government is duty bound to give uninterrupted, uniform and equitable supply of Remdesivir Injections to every citizen.

The discriminatory attitude of state government is violation of article 14 of Constitution of India.

High Court has observed that such discriminatory attitude of state government needs to be corrected and directed the state government to supply 10,000 Remdesivir Injections immediately by today evening 08-00 pm. Through District Collector.

The Hon?ble High Court has also directed the Police Commissioner to deploy necessary staff near Hospitals and Pharmacies to avoid any untoward incident.

The Hon’ble High Court has also directed to set up Dedicated Covid Centers at IGMC, GMC, AIIMS considering large number of patients approaching these Hospitals.
