The raid took place on November 11 in Tronica City, near Delhi. The Delhi Crime Branch team arrested 4 people including a doctor, engineer after preliminary investigation by UP Drugs Department officers. The four defendants are currently in prison. The medicine was fake, the team from the medicine department found out at the same time.
Samples were sent to the lab to confirm what was mixed in these drugs. Generally, the four drugs come from abroad. Dr. Pavitra Pradhan would be the mastermind. After training in China, he opened a drug manufacturing plant in Delhi. After making the medicine from there, Tronica used to send it to the city factory for packaging.

From the documents found during the factory raid, it was found that along with Delhi NCR they were also supplying the rest of the country.
Used to craft expensive drugs only
Cancer drugs are usually very expensive. This is the reason why the accused only manufactured these drugs. Some of the drugs retrieved from their factory cost around Rs 10,000 per pill.

These drugs are used in blood cancer and other problems. Doctors advise eating them only when the condition worsens.
