Criminal Investigation Department (CID) search for Allopathy prescribing Ayush Doctors

Monday, 19 June 2017

The senior officers of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) will soon meet the senior officials of the Ayush department in connection with the ongoing probe into the fake doctors' issue. In the course of the investigation, the CID officers came to know that a large number of Ayurvedic and Homoeopathic doctors were prescribing allopathic medicines. CID officers wanted to know from the Ayush department whether these doctors from other branches of medicines can prescribe allopathic medicines.

It has been learnt that a letter would soon be sent to the Ayush department in this regard. The CID officers may also share information with the Ayush department about the list of Homoeopathic and Ayurvedic doctors who had been prescribing allopathic medicines to the patients. According to a senior official of the West Bengal Medical Council, a homoeopathic or an ayurvedic doctor cannot prescribe allopathic medicines to the patients. There were many instances where these doctors were found prescribing allopathic medicines.

Meanwhile, the East Midnapore police on Sunday arrested a fake doctor who used to run a chamber in Contai for years. After receiving complaints from the local residents, police raided the chamber and asked him to produce the documents. The accused, Ruhul Kuddus had introduced himself as Dr Rabindra Nath Mondal. He had been treating the patient as a specialised doctor. He put up a sign board outside his chamber carrying MD and MBBS degree against his name.

When the police officers asked him to produce his registration and other documents in support of his claim of degree, he failed. In the face of interrogation, he gave in and admitted that he never had an MBBS degree. Police took him to the police station and later arrested him. He was remanded to police custody after being produced before a district court.
