A middle-aged man was arrested and a factory manufacturing duplicate medical equipment was unearthed in south-west Delhi’s Najafgarh on Sunday, police said. The accused was nabbed following interrogation of the two men in the same business, arrested earlier.

The officer said large quantity of machines, packing material, duplicate dialysis guide wires, femoral catheters and angiography guide wires were recovered from the factory.
He was arrested after his name cropped up during interrogation of two men, Gulshan and his assistant Ganesh, who were arrested on Thursday for running another illegal factory manufacturing duplicate medical equipment.
