'Doctor' robs patient of gold chain in hospital

A man, posing as a doctor, has robbed a Mangalasutra from a patient, who was admitted at a private hospital in the city recently.

Soumyashree was an in-patient at JSS Hospital on MG Road in the city on November 14.

On the same day, a man posing as a doctor asked the patient's mother to get the scanning report from the lab. When the mother left the room, the man started a 'checkup' on Soumyashree with a stethoscope and asked her to turn towards the wall.

Then, the man escaped with the mangalsutra, worth Rs 1.5 lakh, leaving the stethoscope.

The police are investigating the case and are checking the CCTV camera footage.
