The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday filed a 1,110-page charge sheet against self-proclaimed doctor Munir Khan, his wife and two sons, under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Khan had allegedly cheated 120 people by claiming that his medicine ‘Body Revival’ could cure all diseases, including cancer. A 100-ml bottle of the medicine costs Rs.15,000. Khan, facing charges of cheating and forgery, also had celebrity clients.
Investigations revealed that the medicines contained ingredients banned by the forest department. Moreover, none of Khan’s medicines are recognised by any authorised medical institution.
The central agency, which had initiated the probe against him, has in the charge sheet stated that Khan had no other sources of income besides the profit he earned by selling these fake medicines. The ED also alleged that Khan purchased properties using these profits and has attached several properties, worth approximately Rs8 crore, registered under names of his family members.
After the special PMLA court takes cognisance of the charge sheet, summons will be issued to all the accused.
