Practicing with bogus MBBS certificate highly dangerous to society: Madras HC on petitioner quack's arrest
Madhurai: Acting on the instruction of the Madurai bench of Madras High Court, the police have arrested a quack claiming to be a doctor, who was practicing with a bogus MBBS certificate.
This came after the quack had filed a complaint in the high court in 2018, submitting that the authorities had wrongfully sealed his clinic in Karur district on the pretext that he is not an MBBS graduate. He sought the court's direction to instruct the authorities to remove the seal from his clinic.
Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that Tamil Nadu Medical Council (TNMC) had preferred a complaint against a quack practicing medicine with a fake MBBS certificate. Upholding the same, the Madras High Court had impleaded the police inspector as a respondent in the petition and directed to submit a status report in the case.
The Times of India reports that on the course of the hearing, the petitioner's counsel submitted that he has completed his medical education from Annamalai University, Chidambaram. He stated that his MBBS certificate has been issued by the registrar of Annamalai University therefore he is not a quack and he has the entitlement to continue his practice and his private clinic.
