Quack runs allopathic clinic, nabbed in raid

Tries to mislead police, could not produce medical degree

A 32-year-old man has been arrested from south Delhi’s Munirka area for practicing allopathic system of medicine without medical qualification, police said on Friday.

According to Chhaya Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (south), Subodh Sarkar is not a registered medical practitioner, but was running a clinic named ‘Mitali Clinic’ at Mansa Ram Chowk in Munirka.

“The action was taken over guidelines issued by Delhi Medical Council to curb activities of quacks in Delhi,” Sharma said.

Clinic raided

A raid was conducted at Mitali Clinic where Subodh claimed to be an MBBS doctor.
He could not produce his medical degree when asked by police.

“He rather tried to mislead the team by showing certificates of Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine System and Modern Scientific System of Medicine issued by Private Medicine Practice Association of India,” Sharma added.

During interrogation he admitted that he did not have any medical degree. He was subsequently arrested and incriminatory documents were recovered from his clinic.

A case under relevant sections of the Delhi Medical Council Act has been lodged at Vasant Vihar police station.

Subodh said police he completed a Diploma in BAMS from a college in Kolkata in 2011.
Later, in the garb of the diploma, he started posing as MBBS doctor and started prescribing allopathic medicines.

Police had earlier arrested Suresh Verma, 53, on the same charge for running a clinic named Santosh Clinic at Munirka village.
