Gurgaon: A man was Saturday arrested here for selling fake medicines for prevention and cure of swine flu, police said.
Charan Singh, who hails from Lucknow, was living in Bijwasan area of Delhi.
Police said he was arrested from R.K. Hospital in Rajendra Park area in Gurgaon, while he was supplying fake swine flu medicines.
Police raided the spot after receiving information that a few people were being cheated in the name of swine flu medicines.
Charan Singh employed nearly half a dozen women to give the medicines to people. They were charging Rs.40 for children and Rs.60 for an adult.
Police said they were investigating the case further.
"The health department will establish the reality of the recovered medicines, but certainly it was not for prevention and cure of swine flu," a police official said.
At least 17 people have died of swine flu in Haryana, with four deaths reported in Gurgaon.
