This fake hospital was running without any licence, doctors were not qualified, there was no pathologist, panel of doctors had names of doctors whose consent to render medical services was not with the management of this hospital.”

Kunal Kumar, Officer incharge of Chainpur police station said sections 420, 467 469 of IPC and sections 40 & 41 of Clinical Establishment Act have been slapped against A Sheikh.

Before its sealing the raiding team got shifted one patient of this hospital from here to Sadar Hospital. DP Kesri said the indoor patient was down with bone fracture and was admitted in this hospital and was taken down to Government Sadar hospital.

Ameet Kumar DC Palamu said this action was prompted against this hospital in the wake of complaints and the inquiry conducted thereof too had found this hospital not following the prescribed norms and rules as laid down for running any clinic or nursing home like this.

However, a doctor said that there are many such fake hospitals, nursing homes which openly flout the norms and rules but are fleecing patients like anything.
