South Delhi Medical Racket Exposed: Fake Doctors, Deceptive Practices, and Tragic Outcomes

A sensational episode has emerged in Delhi’s posh Greater Kailash area, involving two doctors, a woman posing as a surgeon, a laboratory technician, and several dead patients. Four people have been arrested in connection with the deaths of two patients who were undergoing surgery at a clinic in a south Delhi neighborhood.

Dr. Neeraj Agarwal, his wife Pooja Agarwal, and Dr. Jaspreet Singh were arrested on Tuesday, along with former laboratory technician Mahender Singh, according to the Delhi Police.

According to the police, in 2022, a patient named Asghar Ali was admitted to the clinic for gallbladder treatment. Mr Ali was initially told that the surgery would be performed by Dr Jaspreet, a qualified surgeon. However, Dr. Jaspreet was replaced by Pooja and Mahendra just before the operation.

Mr Ali reportedly experienced severe pain after exiting the operating room and was immediately transported to Safdarjung Hospital, where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The patients’ families claimed that Dr. Agarwal, who runs the Agarwal Medical Centre, and three others performed surgeries on multiple patients’ vital organs without adhering to established medical protocols. According to the complainants, Dr. Agarwal is a physician who performs a variety of surgeries due to forged documents.

An investigation into the case revealed that at least nine complaints had been filed against Dr. Agarwal, Pooja, and the Agarwal Medical Centre since 2016. According to the police, all seven patients died as a result of medical malpractice, according to news agency PTI.

Police seized 414 prescription slips with only doctors’ signatures on the top, two registers containing patient details for medical termination of pregnancy (MTP) procedures performed at the clinic, and a number of prohibited medications and injections that are not authorized for storage outside of hospital settings.

Expired surgical blades, original prescription slips from numerous patients, checkbooks from 47 different banks, 54 ATM cards from various banks, passbooks from multiple post offices, and six POS terminal credit card machines were also recovered from Agarwal’s residence and clinic.
