Fake medicine network, which caused several deaths, dismantled in Kuwait

According to officials, the dismantling of the trafficking network began with the arrests of two Egyptians suspected of illegally selling medicines at low prices. After testing, it was confirmed that the medicines sold by both men were fake and had been bought from a Bangladeshi expatriate. One of the Egyptian suspects confessed that he worked for an Indian woman who ran a dealer network. The woman was arrested in possession of almost 500,000 pills containing ingredients which are illegal in Kuwait. Following the arrests of the Egyptian suspects, Major General Abdulhameed Al-Awadi issued a press release confirming that the investigation will identify the ways in which the medicines were illegally smuggled into the country. He explained that people who used these medicines have suffered from serious health issues and some even died.
