Health dept criticised as medicine released three weeks after seizure



Health authorities in Sindh took flak after they released the stock of around 48 million Panadol tablets that they had seized during a raid on a warehouse of a logistics company in Hawkesbay in Karachi around three weeks ago.

The medicine was released after the logistics company provided the relevant documents to the authorities, said provincial drug inspector Dilawar Jiskani. “Today, we have revoked our order of not to dispose of Tab Panadol 500mg seized on September 15, 2022.

After the company provided the bill/invoices and dispatch/distribution plan,” he said.Concerned quarters in the pharmaceutical sector strongly criticised the health department for holding the stock of the important medicine for almost three weeks on what they called “vague charges”.
