Consequently owing to the inaction, it sent notice to Telangana government, ICMR , IRDA and Drug control authorities.

The court on Wednesday, directed them to respond to the PIL (Public interest litigation) by the petitioner. The court questioned them for being irresponsive to to the petitioner J Venudhar reddy‘s allegations.
