A parliamentary standing committee gave a report on Theon Pharmaceuticals, run by Bansal’s son Amit Kumar and wife, Madhu, and it was placed in the both Houses of Parliament on May 8, 2012, he said, adding that the government looked the other way.

He said according to the report some drugs were not safe for patients. Jain said it was clear the wrongdoing took place “under the patronage of Bansal only”.

“We demand the CBI interrogate him immediately as he is an important link in the case.”
