Mumbai lawyer moves Bombay High Court seeking Z+ security for Adar Poonawalla after threat
A Mumbai-based lawyer has filed a petition in Bombay High Court seeking Z+ security cover for Adar Poonawalla, Chief Executive Officer of the Serum Institute of India (SII) which manufactures the Covishield vaccine. The petition filed by Advocate Datta Mane also sought registration of FIR against persons who allegedly threatened Poonawalla in relation to the supply of the vaccine.
Mane's petition states that if vaccine makers feel unsafe, then it may affect vaccine production. "If Adar Poonawalla is out of India, due to fear to his life, then it will be ship in a storm without its captain," the plea stated.
