The Supreme Court on Monday declined to stay the proceedings initiated by the Delhi Drugs Controller against the foundation headed by BJP MP Gautam Gambhir for allegedly procuring and distributing Covid-19 drugs.
Refusing to entertain the plea, Justice D Y Chandrachud, heading a two-judge bench, observed, “We read the papers. People were going helter skelter to procure drugs during the second wave. And then suddenly one person started distributing drugs. This is not done”.
Senior advocate Kailash Vasudev, appearing for the foundation, sought a stay of the prosecution under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940.
