The Supreme Court of India has come down heavily on the Centre and the Madhya Pradesh government for their non-serious attitude in checking of unethical drug trials being conducted by pharma companies in the country.
The bench headed by justice R M Lodha pulled up the Central and the Madhya Pradesh government for not filing their responses with the court in the given time. The bench said it is unfortunate that humans are being treated as guinea pigs and asked the two governments take the matter seriously. The court has given them eight more weeks to file their responses.
