Upon the surprise visit to the clinic, they found that the patients were being allegedly treated by an attendant, Ajinderpal Singh. They also found fake stamps showing the doctor as running the affairs of the clinic with a qualification of MD (doctor of medicine), while she is an Ayurvedic Doctor.

On being inquired, the doctor failed to produce relevant documents supporting the qualification to run the clinic, reports TOI.


A banned drug, called Tramadol which is only available at the prescription of a qualified doctor was also found inside the clinic, added the SDM.

The SDM told Hindustan Times that the registration of an FIR has been recommended against the clinic's management by the administration and the issue has been forwarded to the civil surgeon for further action.
