Surgery Scam: Real-life 'Munna Bhai' doctors including woman arrested in Delhi's Greater Kailash-1
The hospital, identified as Agarwal Medical Center, turned out to be not just a facility with fake doctors but an entire setup of deceit.-
In a shocking revelation, a hospital in the upscale neighborhood of Greater Kailash-1 in Delhi, which was recently raided for the arrest of fake doctors, operated like a criminal gang, preying on patients by offering cheap treatments and luring them with the promise of affordable surgeries.
The arrested fake doctors were conducting fraudulent surgeries, posing a severe threat to the lives of unsuspecting patients. The hospital, identified as Agarwal Medical Center, turned out to be not just a facility with fake doctors but an entire setup of deceit.
Patients were ensnared with the temptation of low-cost treatments and surgeries, only to fall victim to the dubious practices of this gang. Lab technicians and fake doctors performed surgeries, and the so-called surgeon, whose name appeared on surgery notes, was often absent from the operation theater.
The mastermind behind this medical scam, Dr. Neeraj Agarwal, the owner of the hospital, along with his wife, Pooja, lab technician Mahendar Singh, and another fake surgeon named Dr. Jaspreet Singh, have been apprehended by the Delhi Police. Among them, only Dr. Neeraj Agarwal and Dr. Jaspreet Singh hold legitimate medical degrees, but the latter was found conducting surgeries without being present in the operation theater. Police investigations have revealed that several patients lost their lives due to the hospital's negligent and fraudulent medical practices.
The police are currently examining seven cases of alleged medical negligence resulting in deaths. Relatives of the deceased patients are being urged to participate in the investigation. The hospital, operating more like a criminal gang, targeted vulnerable patients in need of surgical procedures.
Patients were enticed with the prospect of inexpensive and immediate treatment, only to find themselves trapped in a cycle of fraudulent practices. The fake doctors would prescribe medications, administer injections, and even perform surgeries, often leading to worsening conditions for the patients.
The gang, with its fraudulent medical operations, managed to exploit patients for financial gain, collecting substantial sums for medicines and treatments.
The police suspect that over the past few years, the fake hospital has swindled patients out of approximately 80 crore rupees. Authorities have written to the Indian Medical Association to revoke the hospital's license. The arrest of the fake doctors has shed light on the dark underbelly of medical malpractice, emphasizing the need for stringent measures to ensure the safety and well-being of patients.
The police are now conducting a thorough investigation into the hospital's records, seizing two registers containing details and prescription slips of over 400 admitted patients.
This shocking revelation has raised concerns about the state of healthcare facilities in Delhi, prompting authorities to reevaluate the licensing and oversight of medical institutions to prevent such incidents in the future. The arrested individuals are likely to face charges of medical malpractice, fraud, and criminal negligence.
The Greater Kailash-1 hospital, once trusted by the community, has now become a symbol of deceit and endangerment. As the investigation continues, more details are expected to emerge, shedding light on the extent of the fake doctor gang's impact on the lives of innocent patients.
