DHANGADI, Sept 7: Many drug stores in Kailali district are found selling date-expired medicines, despite knowing their harm on human health.
A joint monitoring team of the Department of Drug Administration, Kailali office and the District Joint Market Monitoring Committee found this while carrying out monitoring of the drug stores in various places of the district.
The monitoring team also confiscated various date-expired medicines from the shelves of local drug stores.
