Man arrested for impersonating as doctor in Delhi
New Delhi: A 53-year-old man was arrested for posing as a doctor and illegally running a clinic in Munirka in south Delhi, police said on Saturday.
Suresh Verma wanted to become a doctor and save lives of several people but all he could achieve is a degree in ayurveda.
Verma, who has been posing as a doctor for several years, landed in police net recently and confessed that he had never acquired MBBS degree.
The arrest came after police received a specific input that Verma was running a clinic despite not being a registered medical practitioner.
"During interrogation, Verma disclosed that he is a resident of village Munirka. He lost his mother in his childhood due to tuberculosis and since then he had a strong desire to become a doctor.
"In the year 1984, he completed a diploma in ayurveda from Uttar Pradesh. Later he started posing as a doctor and was attending to patients," a police official said.
