Snapdeal case: Cops to summon courier officials

NAVI MUMBAI: A day after the police recorded the statement of a pharmacist, who had complained to the state food and drug administration against e-commerce portal Snapdeal for "supplying prescription drugs", the police said on Sunday that they would record the statement of the courier agency which had "delivered" the drugs to the complainant's Panvel residence.

Prescription drugs cannot be sold over the counter (OTC) without a doctor's prescription.

Senior police inspector Bajirao Bhosale said, "We will record statements of all those who are linked with Snapdeal in selling the non-OTC drugs without the doctor's prescription. We have summoned the courier agency's authorized person."

Bhosale said they would also probe the role of pharma firms accused of selling non-OTC drugs on Snapdeal. He said the five pharma companies have licences to produce the drugs but have no retailing licences for those products.
