Moirangthem Bobby, Proprietor of Bobby Pharmacy on Sunday denied any charges or allegations that they were involved in selling illegal drugs as claimed by the National Revolutionary Front, Manipur (NRFM), asserting that all drugs sold in their pharmacy were legal, authorised and licensed drugs.

Addressing the press at Manipur Press Club, Moirangthem Bobby said that NRFM allegedly charged the pharmacy for selling drugs with the attempt to destroy the younger generation of the society. It is totally wrong, the pharmacy keeps only licensed drugs, Bobby said, denying such allegations.

He said that in the month of June, NRFM demanded Rs. 15 lakh through WhatsApp following which he tried to contact them but to no avail. He continued that they closed the pharmacy for some days in November out of afraid and then on November 14, they found one IED bomb at MLA Sushindro’s gate.

The Proprietor added that they opened the pharmacy again thinking the outfit may contact again. However, there was no contact but instead, the pharmacy was bombed on December 15, he said.

Bobby also stated that there was no contact with NRFM after the WhatsApp message in June and they got no warning even though the NRFM published in the newspaper that Bobby pharmacy was warned to stop indulging in drug business but continued which prompted the outfit to attack the pharmacy.
