Police said the joint team raided BDN Path Lab in Binola Industrial Area and found the arrested accused running the lab without any permission or in compliance with biomedical waste management guidelines.
The lab operator, identified as Rahul Yadav, also failed to produce documents related to his degree and was later arrested before being handed over to Bilaspur police station, they added.
Following a complaint by MS Nehra, additional senior medical officer of the Community Health Centre (Bhora Kalan), an FIR was registered against the accused under Section 15 (3) of the Indian Medical Council Act and sections 420 (cheating) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.
"The accused, a native of Jodiya village in Rajasthan's Alwar district, only has a BSc degree and has no qualification to run a laboratory," said Inderjeet Yadav, a DSP in the Chief Minister's Flying Squad.
"He has been running the fake lab for one year and screened more than 750 people during this period. Fake digital signatures of a doctor were also found in the reports," he said.
"The accused was let off on bail after he joined the investigation. Further probe is underway," said Bilaspur police station SHO Ajay Malik.
The suspect confessed that he was conducting medical tests during questioning. "He issued reports on a fake letterhead where he projected himself as an MBBS. He told us that he is a science graduate and started the lab after his friend gave him the idea to fleece people. He also revealed that it was an easy task to operate in the area as there was hardly any competition and he was earning well," the DSP told HT.
