It was most likely that these used gloves would have made their way into the Delhi and NCR markets after repackaging.
UP Police has unearthed a gang running a racket of selling used discarded gloves after repackaging them. This racket was running in Bulandshahr, just 90 Km away from Delhi, after a raid was conducted on the tip of Delhi Police, which were also tracking the same racket. Two persons have been arrested.
A huge consignment of potentially harmful bio-waste, kept in about 100 sacks, was found from the storeroom in Bulandshahr’s Kahora village on Tuesday evening. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there is a huge surge in the demand for gloves, and the racket was taking advantage of this. Medical experts said that these gloves should not be reused as they can spread infection, not only Covid-19 but others too.
According to sources, it was most likely that these used gloves would have made their way into the Delhi and NCR markets after repackaging.
