Dibrugarh: A doctor of Assam Medical College Hospital (AMCH), wanted on the basis of a complaint accusing her of promising jobs in lieu of money surrendered before the chief judicial magistrate's court here on Monday.
She had been absconding for the last 21 days after a cash-for-jobs case was registered against her at Dibrugarh police station in upper Assam, a police officer told PTI.
The police had on Friday arrested the doctor's husband in connection with the case. Following her surrender, the court sent her to judical custody.
Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that the senior resident doctor attached to the Assam Medical College Hospital (AMCH) had been booked for allegedly taking money from aspirants in lieu of jobs in the Northeast Frontier Railways. The woman doctor had allegedly taken Rs 22 lakh from three people promising them jobs.
An FIR was lodged against the doctor by one Amol Nath at Gabharupathar police outpost in Dibrugarh district on December 7, alleging that she had taken about Rs 22 lakh from him and two other job aspirants with a promise to provide them jobs in the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR).
Nath had claimed in the FIR that he had transferred half of the amount, sought by the medical practitioner, to the bank accounts of one Rajib Parashar, who was arrested by the Guwahati crime branch in October, for his alleged involvement in extorting money from candidates of various recruitment examinations for government jobs.
The doctor's driver also recorded his statement in court.
