Kolkata: West Bengal CID arrested another person allegedly posing as a doctor of a renowned city hospital, taking the total number of arrests to six in the case.
The CID sleuths arrested Ajay Tiwari, attached to Kothari Medical Centre, a top CID officer told PTI.
“We had a tip off about this person and we were tracking his activities for the last two days. We arrested him tonight from his chamber in the Kidderpore area,” the IPS officer said.
Tiwari has been associated with Kothari Medical Centre for over 20 years as a Gastroenterologist, he said.
“Tiwari in reality is a B.Com graduate. We have all the documents against him. It seems that Tiwari is part of the racket that is active in this business,” the officer said. A report in TOI states that he had even performed Endoscopy on some patients
The doctor, who was charging patients Rs 300 as consultation fees, would be produced at a court tomorrow, he said.
Six IPC sections including punishment for cheating by personation, cheating, forgery of valuable security, forgery for the purpose of cheating, using as genuine a forged document and punishment of criminal conspiracy have been slapped against Tiwari and those arrested as fake doctors.
