Ujjain: Local administration raided a diagnostic centre, which was conducting RTPCR test without permission on Thursday.

The officers and CSP Hemlata Agrawal reached the centre and found the complaints to be true.

Patients of Covid-19 are roaming in the city due to negligence of such centres so we sealed the outlet, said an official.

Patidar Medical Store in the Freeganj area was sealed on Thursday for selling oximeters at a premium. The administration had received a complaint that the oxi-meter was being sold at a higher price from the store located in front of SS Gupta Hospital. Drug inspectors Dharm Singh Kushwaha and Madhava Nagar TI Manish Lodha reached there to investigate the complaint. Psoing as a customer they inquired the price of the oxi-meter. The shop owner Manoj Patidar quoted a price of Rs 1,400 per oxi-meter. MRP was not marked on oximeter cartons. Oximeters are available in the price range of Rs 900-1,000 per piece.
