26-June-2017

Amid a series of fake doctor cases in Bengal, yet another person with a fake MBBS degree was arrested from West Bengal's Nadia district on Monday.

"A fake doctor named Bapi Nag has been arrested from Nadia district's Hanskhali area for allegedly claiming himself to be a skin specialist while he did not have an authentic MBBS degree," said an officer from Hanskhali police station said.

According to police, Nag, a resident of South 24 Pargana district's Bongaon, could only produce an old certificate of a diploma in MBBS from some university in Assam during the interrogation.

"The accused has been arrested and several documents have been seized from his chamber. We would produce him to court tomorrow (Tuesday)," the officer added.

A number of fake doctors have been taken into custody by the state police and the CID over the past one month, while more than 500 medical practitioners, reportedly having doubtful credentials, are under CID's radar. - IANS
