Deaths caused due to reaction of sub standard medicines distributed by Punjab Institute of Cardiology were challenged in Lahore High Court (LHC) Monday.
The petitioner took the plea that the patients fell victim to medicines due to flawed strategy of the administration. He said over two dozens patients have so far lost their lives. "Therefore, a judicial commission to probe into the matter be constituted to fix responsibility and make recommendations for giving exemplary punishment to them".
The commission should also cancel licenses of the companies involved in selling fake medicines and issue orders for registration of cases against them, he prayed.
Officials say that 27 persons have died so far due to distribution of substandard and free medicines among the patients.
Over 45 patients are stated to be in precarious condition.
Later, the Punjab government sealed the pharmaceutical company that supplied spurious medicines medicines to Punjab Institute of Cardiology.
