MD files complaint

  • In a complaint to the SSP, Dr Kamal Baghi, MD, Anil Baghi Hospital, said a man was illegally selling Covid injections in the NCR on behalf of their hospital
  • “The fraudster was using the name of Anhil Baghi Hospital to fool patients,” he said

In one such case, a local private hospital has accused an unidentified person of committing fraud by selling an injection at an exorbitant price using the name of the hospital’s pharmacy. In a complaint to the SSP, Dr Kamal Baghi, managing director of the hospital, said a man was indulging in the illegal sale of Covid-cure injections at a cost of Rs 40,000 each in the NCR on behalf of their hospital. “The name of our hospital is Anil Baghi Hospital whereas the man was selling drugs in name of Anhil Baghi Hospital to fool the patients,” claimed Baghi.

“The fraudster tried to sell the injections to a person who was known to me. Before transferring the money against the purchase of injections, he cross-checked with me. I realised that someone was trying to sell the injections illegally by using our firm’s name,” Baghi claimed.

“The accused tried to contact another person known to me. I have shared with the police the information and the account number where he asked customers to deposit money,” he said, urging the police to register a case. — OC
