Police booked a 32-year-old man in Odisha for making fake COVID-19 vaccines, although he apparently did not sell one yet, and infertility medicines. The police found the fake vaccines during a raid.


The man, Prahallad Bisi, is a class 7 dropout who lived in Rushuda village in the Bargarh district, Odisha. According to the Drug inspector of the district, Sashmita Dehury, a person informed them earlier that Bisi was going to sell a COVID-19 vaccine he made.

Fake COVID-19 vaccine, infertility medicine

Following that, officials of the DCA (Drug Control Administration) and the Bheden police raided his house. They then found twelve bottles with labels, along with injections and syringes. In fact, the labels say β€˜COVID-19 vaccine, so there was no doubt about it.

Along with the fake vaccines for COVID-19, Drug Inspector of Sambalpur, S Mallick, reported that they also found fake injections to treat infertility. Bisi named these β€˜Ovu Stop’.

When questioned, Bisi revealed that he mixed tetanus toxoid, cefotaxime sodium and castor oil for the infertility injection. However, he refused to reveal the exact contents of the fake COVID-19 vaccines, saying it was made of different allopathy medicines. He also claimed that it was β€˜100% successful’.
