A mobile court on Wednesday seized counterfeit Seclo capsules and not-for-sale government medicines from a pharmacy at Hathazari in Chattogram.

The court, led by Hathazari UNO Ruhul Amin, carried out a raid at Alam Pharmacy in the morning and found 224 files of the counterfeit capsules and a large stock of the not-for-sale medicines of government hospitals.

The UNO said that they carried out the raid after getting the information on Facebook. He said that the Seclo capsules bore Square, the name of the manufacturing company, and their contents tasted bitter.

But the counterfeit capsules did not bear the name of the manufacturing company and their contents tasted like flour, he said.

The pharmacy had been shut down, but the owner could not be arrested as he had fled away, the UNO added.
