The officials were arrested on charges of manufacturing and sale of adulterated drugs, officials told news agency PTI.

The arrests were made after an FIR was lodged on Thursday against five officials of Marion Biotech, including two of its directors, over a complaint by a drugs inspector of the CDSCO, officials told PTI.

Police said the directors of the company are at large and a search is underway to apprehend them.

Noida Phase 3 police station in-charge Vijay Kumar said those arrested have been identified as Tuhin Bhattacharya, head operation; Atul Rawat, manufacturing chemist; and Mool Singh, analytical chemist.
