Bihar: Doctor removed from government Hospital for instigating patients

Gaya: Following the allegations of instigating patients from the Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College and hospital towards a private hospital owned by him,Dr. Rahul Kumar, an associate professor and doctor of ANMMCH has been now removed from his hospital duties.

He still continues to teach students at the Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College as associate professor as the authorities are yet to take a decision on this front.

Medical Dialogues Team had earlier reported that Dr. Rahul Kumar, a practitioner and an associate professor working with the medicine department of Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College and Hospital (ANMMCH) came under scanner, for allegedly instigating patients to not undergo treatment at the said medical college and hospital. It was also alleged that the doctor was instigating patients not to seek treatment at the hospital by saying that the hospital does not have proper infrastructure and facilities for the treatment and was diverting patients to a private hospital patronized and run by him.
