Uttar Pradesh: 60 Quacks booked

Uttar Pradesh: 60 Quacks booked

Moradabad: At least sixty unqualified doctors have been booked in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh for treating patients out in the open and in unhygienic spaces.

Moradabad’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ranjan Gautam said he found a few doctors giving treatment to people in an inadequate manner and when he ordered a probe, he found that they were chemists.

Gautam immediately ordered the clinics of these unqualified doctors to be sealed and booked them on charges of medical negligence. Their case will be heard in a chief magistrate’s court on today.

“When I got to know about the incident, I went there and inquired about the same. I found that a few doctors were treating patients in an inadequate manner. They had patients lined up outside their clinics in an open ground. The first thing I did was I sealed premises of the concerned doctors and asked what was the reason for indulging in this malpractice. Then then I got to know that one of them was a mere chemist and was running a medical store. After that, I sealed his clinic as well,” said Gautam.

“After the investigation, an ambulance was called and the patients were sent to the district hospital. These fake doctors will be prosecuted. We have sealed a few more hoax hospitals like these. In all, I had caught 60 doctors and they will be prosecuted in a chief magistrate’s court on Monday,” he added.

    Quacks are the greatest hurdle to the development of medical field in India.
    Since the in great numbers the politicians also do not dare to stop them.

  3. In Maharashtra there are many quaks practising routinely in villages and urban area also but they cant come into trap due to some things.
    1)they may manage govt.officers by giving some hapta
    2)in turn govt officials give them regular updates regarding activities against them,so they can manage as per.
    3)during this period they vanishes from the area and again come back.

    most of such cases are first handled by quacks and when these cases are damaged and have no more money than they shifted to qualified one not only shifted but in case of any misshaping these persons evoked for violence or court case in such a way they divert the attention from other side and save himself who was actually main culprit

    Only qualified people through govt.recognized courses are to be allowed to practice medicine of respective speciality only. Any body else doing practice in which they are not competent should be punished suitably.
