    The Drugs Control Administration officials conducted raids on three clinics operated by unlicensed medical practitioners, also known as quacks. The raids took place in Vepur village, Hanwada mandal of Mahabubnagar district; Jangaon in Jangaon district; and Film Nagar in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad. Illegally stocked drugs were seized at each location.

    During the raids, a total of Rs. 2.56 lakhs worth of drugs were confiscated. In Vepur Village, officials discovered 36 varieties of drugs, including 10 expired ones and 12 physician’s samples. Higher generation antibiotics were also found at the clinics.

    The indiscriminate sale of antibiotics by unqualified individuals can have harmful effects on the health of rural populations, leading to the development of antimicrobial resistance. The presence of steroids at the quack clinics was also noted by V B Kamalasan Reddy, the director general of the Drug Control Administration. Misuse of steroids can result in various health issues such as immune system suppression, hormonal imbalances, muscle and bone weakness, cardiovascular problems, and psychological effects.
