Both the accused hail from West Bengal and have been identified as Anirban Roy of Kolkata and Parimal Roy of Murshidabad, the report said.
The ANI report stated that Drug Controller Officer Amandeep Chauhan said that action was taken after Chief Minister's Flying Squad received complaints that fake Covid-19 test reports were being generated and people were using them to travel abroad.
The fake reports were being given to people for Rs 1400 to Rs 1300 for the last two months, Chauhan said, the report added.
People would get negative or positive reports by paying the amount to get leave or travel abroad.
