IMPHAL, May 9 : Manipuri Students’ Federation (MSF) has banned M/S Rishika Medicos, Thangal Bazar after the pharmacy was found selling expired medicines to the customers.
Speaking to mediapersons at MSF office located at Sega Road Keishampat Top Leirak, 42-year old Konsam Khewarjit alias Ibomcha of Tangkham Mamang Leikai said that he is a diabetes patient and has been prescribed insulin injection from last month.
“The insulin I bought from other pharmacies worked well on me. One day, I bought insulin from M/S Rishika Medicos at Thangal Bazar. Soon after the insulin was injected, I was started feeling uneasy and I thought it was normal,” he said.
MSF general secretary Yairakpam Wanglemba said that the student body had initiated the drive after receiving information about Rishika Medicos selling expired medicines to the customers. During the drive, 32 varieties of expired medicines were found.
