The state government also filed a status report on the ongoing investigation in this case in the court. A bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni was informed by Maharashtra Police so far recorded statements of 400 witnesses and investigators are trying to trace the accused doctor. It is noteworthy that a fake vaccination camp was organized in a residential society in suburban Kandivali, in the same case a doctor is accused. Thackeray said, “At least 2,053 people became victims of these fake vaccination camps. Four FIRs have been registered in connection with the organization of these camps.
While some of the accused have been identified, FIRs have also been registered against several unidentified persons.” The bench, while accepting the state’s report, said that the state government and the corporation authorities, meanwhile, have to ascertain the ill-effects of fake vaccines in the victims. Steps should be taken to get them investigated. “Our concern is about what is happening to these people who got vaccinated (in fake vaccination camps). What were they administered and what was the effect of the fake vaccine?” The bench also expressed displeasure that the state government has not laid down specific guidelines for conducting vaccination camps in private residential societies, offices, etc., even when The court has given an order in this regard earlier this month. Senior advocate Anil Sakhre, appearing for the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, said, “We have come to know that the vaccination certificates were not given to the people on the day they were given fake vaccines. Later these certificates were issued in the name of three different hospitals. Only then did people realize that something was wrong. These hospitals said that they had not provided the vials that were used in those camps. We have also written a letter to Serum Institute of India in this regard.” The court asked the BMC and the state government to file their affidavits with answers to the court’s questions and directions on June 29, the next date of hearing in the matter. .
