'Doctor' found practising without degree in Baguiati arrested
Kolkata: A fake doctor was arrested from Baguiati on Thursday. Police said a probe was initiated a few days ago, on the basis of a complaint lodged by a resident of New Town.
Investigation had revealed that Dr Bazlur Rahaman had been practicing in the area without having any valid degree.
The police had started collecting information about him and came to know that he had gone out of station. As soon as the police came to know that he had returned to his home, they approached him and asked to provide his certificates.
He failed to put forward any original documents to show he possesses the necessary degrees to prescribe medicines to a patient.
Investigation has revealed that he had been practicing in the area for the past few years. But recently, his behaviour had led to the suspicion of the complainant, following which he had lodged a complaint with the police.
The police are now trying to find out whether he was involved with any healthcare centres. The police also came to know that several people used to visit his chamber every day. But he had never let anyone understand that he didn't possess ant degree to practice medicine.
The investigating officers are also trying to find out whether the accused also used to run any pathological centre.
The documents which the accused had shown to police, all turned out to be fake. The police are trying to find out whether he had prepared the fake documents by using the registration number of some other doctor.
The police would also send all relevant documents related to the case to the CID for further investigation in this regard.
It may be recalled that the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had initiated a probe and arrested several fake doctors from different parts of the state in recent times.
According to a senior official, local people had started helping the investigating agency in identifying the fake doctors.
