Divya Yog Pharmacy - a company promoted by yoga guru Ramdev - has filed a case of cheating at city police station against a Maharashtra-based trader for backtracking and trading malpractices.
According to the case, Divya Yog Pharmacy paid ₹1.20 crore last month to Bhagwan Das for supplying of Ayurveda raw material consignment.
The raw material never arrived and the trader’s mobile phone was switched off, according to the police complaint.
Postal communications done by the pharmacy were also not responded, said complainant Harish Shankar, the pharmacy’s assistant managing director.
He pleaded before a district court to issue directive to police to register a case against the trader.
“Despite advance payment made to the trader, the consignment didn’t reach in time and no response to our communications has been made from the trader’s side. So, we had to take the legal route as it’s a blatant breach of trading norms and agreement,” said Shankar.
Police have lodged the complaint as per the court’s directive.
Chandrabhan Singh, in-charge of Haridwar police station, said: “The agreement, receipt and related details have been sought from Divya Pharmacy management.”
The Divya Yog Pharmacy makes Ayurveda medicines that are sold across Patanjali stores. The raw material is purchased from Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and other states.
