A BOGUS doctor who had conducted more than 70,000 operations and medical procedures over the past decade has been arrested in Uttar Pradesh, India.
Malaysia Nanban reported that the man was a medical assistant with the Indian air force and worked under a doctor named Rajesh in Bangalore.
He apparently made copies of the doctor’s certificates and then created new documents and put his own name on them.
For the past 10 years, he ran his own medical practice, successfully registered himself with the medical council of Karnataka and even worked in a government hospital.
Eventually other doctors grew suspicious of him and reported the matter to authorities.
In the ensuing probe, the man was exposed as a fake and was arrested by the police.
