Large amounts of money are involved in these transnational criminal enterprises. Counterfeiting is a global problem which now has attracted due attention of people from medical profession, Drug Enforcement Agencies and Law Enforcement Agencies like Customs and Police. Counterfeiters, who run this deadly trade undercover, use sophisticated technologies and tools and are well equipped.

Sinha briefly touched upon the significant achievements of Interpol’s Medical Product Counterfeiting and Pharmaceutical Crime (MPCPC) unit which coordinated a series of transnational operations codenamed Operation Pangea resulting in impressive seizures of counterfeit medicines world over.
