Doctor caught taking bribe

Dr Narayanaswamy had refused to perform the hernia operation on Gowtham, till his father Gangadhar, a resident of Doddibeedhi in the town, gave him Rs 8,000. Gangadhar had informed reporters of print and electronic media in this regard.

At 11 am, Gangadhar met Dr Narayanaswamy and told him that he could pay only Rs 6,000 as he was a dailywager.

He gave an advance amount of Rs 2,000 an even as the doctor was keeping the money in his pocket, mediapersons arrived at the spot. Narayan-aswamy claimed Gangadhar had given him the money voluntarily. When the patients and the public took Narayanas-wamy to task, he confessed to seeking the bribe and returned the money.
