- Bombay High Court said that it will hear the petition of Sonu Sood.
- Pune-based producer Nilesh Navlakha has leveled allegations against Sonu Sood.
- Sonu Sood told the court the entire process of drug management.
A bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice Girish Kulkarni heard the PIL. Sonu’s lawyer Milan Desai told him that the actor had applied for interference in the hearing of the case. The Chief Justice said that he would listen to Sonu Sood. “Since the beginning of the pandemic, it has been doing philanthropic work for the needy,” Sonu said in his petition. He provided free accommodation to doctors and health workers at his hotel in Juhu. Provided food to 45,000 people daily during the lockdown. Provide free transport to more than 20,000 tourists so that they can reach their homes.
Sonu said, “When the second wave came in April 2021, people started running here and there for life saving medicines.” I felt that due to lack of coordination the medicine was not getting. In that situation I decided to contact the needy people and the place where medicines are available so that the people of that place can get the medicine easily. It was a two stage process. Patients were requested to submit documents like Aadhar card, covid report, doctor’s prescription and verification was done by contacting the hospital. When the matter was under investigation, I was trying to find out the availability and location of the medicine as mentioned by my channels.
Sonu Sood said, “I have never bought drugs for business.” I just showed the patients the way to the pharmacy where medicines are available. Pune-based filmmaker Nilesh Navlakha did not try to find out the truth and made baseless allegations.
