Quack runs allopathic clinic, held

A 53-year-old man has been arrested in south Delhi’s Munirka area for practising allopathic medicine without having requisite medical qualification, police said on Saturday.

According to Chhaya Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (south), Suresh Verma is not a registered medical practitioner, but was running a clinic named ‘Santosh Clinic’ at Munirka village.

“The action was taken over guidelines issued by Delhi Medical Council to curb activities of quack medical practitioners in the Capital,” Sharma said.

A raid was conducted at Santosh Clinic where Verma claimed to be an MBBS doctor. A police team asked him to produce his medical degree, which he failed to do so.

“Later, during interrogation he broke down and disclosed that he did not have any medical degree. He was arrested and incriminatory documents were recovered from his clinic,” Sharma added.

A case under the Delhi Medical Council Act was lodged  with Vasant Vihar police station.
Suresh said he studied up to class 10. “His mother expired during his childhood due to tuberculosis. Since then he had a strong desire to become a doctor,” Sharma said.
