Fake Doctor in UP Unnao Injects HIV Virus To The Villagers, 41 People Found Positive


Uttar Pradesh: A Shocking Incident Happened in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow. A man cheating people as a doctor infected HIV VIRUS to at least 41 villagers. He did this by using the syringes and needles contaminated with the HIV virus. Sushil Choudhury stated that the police are now looking for this fake doctor Rajendra Yadav, who fled Bangarmau, a small town in Uttar Pradesh state after people found out about the HIV infections in December.

A case has been registered against the fake medical practitioner, Chief Medical Officer of Unnao Dr S P Chaudhary said. The Centre has, meanwhile, dispatched a team of experts to Unnao for an inquiry into the incident the medical fraternity termed a “criminal” act.

“During a routine screening from April to July, 12 HIV positive cases were reported from Bangarmau tehsil alone. During another screening in November, another 13 cases were reported from the same place,” the CMO said.”After noticing the high number of cases, the health department constituted a two-member committee which visited various hamlets of Bangarmau to investigate the reasons behind the sport,” he said.

Further, Choudhury said, “An investigation showed that almost all of them had taken injections from one person. This was an important lead. We set up special medical camps in villages in the area and checked 566 people, and 21 were found to be HIV positive.”

Police Inspector Arun Pratap Singh said that during interrogation, the quack stated that he had earlier worked as a compounder with a doctor and gained some knowledge about medicines there.

Later, he started medical practice on his own. As his prescriptions were quite cheap, patients thronged his makeshift clinic, he said.

“He would stay there for two-three hours. For ₹10, he would provide both medical and injections to the patients. People flocked to him in large numbers. After speaking to the HIV-affected persons, the investigating team also found that they had received treatment from the same place,” said PK Dohre, medical superintendent of the local community center.
