Infertility medicine issue: Probe report 'not in favour' of Baba Ramdev

Dehradun: The inquiry committee, set up by Uttarakhand government to examine the controversial infertility medicine produced by Ramdev's pharmacy, has submitted its report which is "not in favour" of the yoga guru.

The state government had formed the three-member committee last year to probe 'Putrajeevak Beej', an ayuvedic product which allegedly promises a male child.

The report has been sent to Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat and will be submitted to the Union government after he gives the go ahead, state's Principal Secretary, Health, Om Prakash, said.

"The inquiry report on Putrajeevak medicine is not in favour of Ramdev. The report has been sent to Chief Minister Harish Rawat," Prakash said, while refusing to divulge the details.

The product courted controversy when on 1 May, Rajya Sabha MPs led by JD(U)'s K C Tyagi demanded a ban on it and sought stringent action against the manufacturer.

The Centre had then directed the Uttarakhand government to launch an inquiry into the matter.

However, Ramdev had rejected the allegations, saying the medicine helps in curing infertility in women and termed as "false and misleading" reports that it promises a male child.

The committee, which was earlier headed by AYUSH Drug Controller PD Chamoli, however, gave a clean chit to Ramdev, saying that the nomenclature of the drug was in accordance with the ancient Ayurvedic books and literature.

But, after the Chamoli committee report, the state government asked the DG Health and state law department to examine the matter and submit its report, which has turned out against Ramdev, Prakash added.
