Dr. Muhammad Qahir Qanit, head of the central Baghlan Hospital, claimed Shukria Eisakhel, representing Kabul province in the lower house of the parliament, had distributed bad medicines to different hospitals. Of them, seven drugs were either expired or found substandard. However, Shukria Eisakhel said she did not know that the quality of the medicines she distributed was low or they were expired. She said she transferred the medicines on her own cost to hospitals from the MoPH in line with the demand of the people. She claimed she did not open the cans in which the medicines were packed during their distribution. With her good intentioned activities Eisakhel was disturbing business of the drug mafia who hit back denouncing her to stop her from transporting urgently needed medicine from Kabul to Baghlan.
