New Delhi: Fake Pathology lab which issued 23,000 fake reports in one year, Busted


New Delhi: Fake Pathology lab which issued 23,000 fake reports in one year, Busted

The lab had issued more than 23,000 fake reports in the names of fictitious doctors

New Delhi: Two men were arrested for allegedly running a fake pathology lab in northwest Delhi for a year and sending fake reports to laboratories across the country, police said.

The lab, being run in the name of Unicare Path Solutions Pvt Ltd, from a small room in Adarsh Nagar, had issued more than 23,000 fake reports in the names of fictitious doctors, they added.

On April 17, the police were informed about the abduction of one Sanjay Yadav (24) by a man posing as a CBI official. When police reached the path lab, whose employee had made the call, they found reports there in the names of a few doctors.

The lab did not have any infrastructure or machines to carry out tests, the police said.

This raised suspicion and when they asked Ajay Yadav about the doctors he could not give any satisfactory reply.

They got the credentials of the doctors checked from the Medical Council of India and the Delhi Medical Council but the records of those doctors were not found with either of the two bodies, the police said.

Later, Sanjay Yadav was sent back by his kidnapper who had taken him to settle a financial dispute.

Subsequently, Sanjay and Ajay were arrested. Ajay told police that he had worked as an assistant and courier boy with pathology labs in Uttar Pradesh for 10 years and had gained superficial knowledge about the tests. In order to earn easy money, he opened the lab and roped in Sanjay too, police said.

The fake pathological lab even had a website that claimed that it was equipped to carry out more than 2500 medical tests.

The samples were received from labs across Delhi and other states and the fake reports were generated on the basis of the parameters that Ajay was aware of along with digital signatures of fictitious doctors, they said.

The labs that sent the samples also did not check whether Unicare Path Solutions was a genuine lab.

    There are genuine labs also in this country that give fake reports. We are like this only.

  2. This is just the tip of the iceberg. The real muck is much deeper. So many private practitioners hire technicians to run a small lab attached to their practice. Who is going to stop that? People doing this always take high moral grounds.

    It is the duty of Delhi govt or Delhi medical council and the Civil surgeon to keep an eye on labs in new delhi and grant permission after checking the credentials of concerned pathologists. DelHi medical council earns so much mo.ey from doctors to register them with Delhi Medical council but at the grassroot level they arent doing anything. Govt is also sleeping. We indian citisens are just left to the mercy of god.

  4. Government can not do everything for us. We have to get up and see where we are giving our samples. Whether the pathologist is there or not. Talk to the doctor if possible.
