Khanna further said that addition of Coronil with allopathic drugs shall also amount to mixopathy i.e. a cocktail of allopath and ayurved which is not permitted as per rulings of the Supreme Court. Besides the SC, he said, several High Courts have ruled that "mixopathy is not allowed". "Hence, addition of Coronil shall be contempt of court," the doctor said.
Khanna also added that the section 34 of National Medical Commission also does not allow the mixopathy practice.
"I would be highly obliged if you kindly take prompt action and direct the Secretary of Health, Government of Uttarakhand accordingly," Khanna said in his letter dated June 4.
