Quack arrested for four-yr-old's death

Gives him expired medicines, injections

A quack was arrested for the death of a four-year-old boy after he had given expired medicines to the victim at Mayapuri in west Delhi on Sunday.

Ishaq Ansari, 40, of Hari Nagar in west Delhi was apprehended while he was trying to flee from his house.

Ansari, who hails from Uttar Pradesh’s Kushinagar district, claimed himself as doctor and practised at Rewari line slum clusters in Mayapuri.

Three days ago, Runjay Singh went to Ansari with his ailing son Rishu.
Singh alleged that Ansari had given some expired medicines and injections to Rishu after which he collapsed. Then Singh rushed Rishu to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital but doctor declared him brought dead.

When he returned to Ansari’s clinic, he found that Ansari had fled. Then the matter was reported to police and Ansari was arrested at his home.

Ansari told police that he had done his schooling from Patna and due to poverty, he could not study further, and his wish to become a doctor remain unfulfilled.

To work as a doctor, he arranged a certificate of RMP Academy in Patna. Then he started practising in Mayapuri slums as he knew he could dupe illiterate people easily there. He had been practicing in Delhi for 18 years.

During interrogation, he produced Medical Practitioner Certificate of May 13, 1993 for RMP Bihar under the patronage of Medicare and Rural Dental Practitioner Welfare Council, registered by government of Bihar which was not endorsed by Delhi Medical Council.

He confessed giving Rishu expired medicines which caused his death, police said.
