The arrest was made based on the complaint filed by one Nareti, the patient’s son. He had filed a complaint with the anti-corruption agency Lokayukta that Dr Yadav had demanded a bribe of Rs 6,000 to operate on his father for hernia. “The surgery at the government hospital should not have cost anything to the patient,” the patient pointed out.

Based on the complaint, a trap was laid to nab the doctor for demanding bribe and subsequently he was arrested by the police.
