    Half job done always. Make a fool of public who’re already fools under the management of the wise.
    Timber smuggling seized, donkeys and trucks charged. If Robots are doing all this what about the humans operating these Robots.

    I am totally agreed with uncle Dr. Khalil which is a stark reality. The administration should show a zero tolerance about fake drugs as it is concerned with lives of this poor area.

    what about the medicine storekeepers, they are equally involved in the crime i believe ..

      Agree with Dr Khalil. Without the convivance of the shopkeepers spurious drugs cannot be sold. There should be death penalty for fake drug peddling.
