In a bizarre case in Pakistan’s Punjab, a man has been arrested for selling the oximeters without a vending license. Abdul, 44, doesn’t have a license to sell medical equipment but sees a lot of business potential in selling oximeter as covid cases across the globe witness a sharp increase, yet again.
To overcome the license issue, Abdul started selling oximeter as cloth clips and successfully sold over a thousand oximeters, however, after a complaint from a jealous pharmacy shop owner, who has a valid license, Abdul was arrested under PPC (Pakistan Penal Code) for selling a product without any valid license.
Abdul was presented to court where he he confessed selling oximeter but in his defence, Abdul said that he has been selling these oximeters without batteries that make them just a cloth clip. Abdul was later released on bail.
In another similar case, a man was caught selling stethoscope as headphones.
