JASHORE: The owner of two private clinics and diagnostic centres in Jashore’ Manirampur operated on patients although he neither has any medical degree or experience.

“Abdul Hai, owner of two branches of Moon Hospital & Diagnostic centres, was conducting operations identifying himself as a doctor,” Jashore acting Civil Surgeon Dr Abu Maud said on Monday night, reports UNB.

“He was playing with the lives of general people,” said Dr Maud adding that both of the centres were sealed off and the district administration will be informed about this fake doctor. 

Dr Maud said they sealed off six hospitals and diagnostic centres on Monday. They are- Satata Diagnostic Centre, Adhunik Diagnostic Centre in Jessore town, two branches of Moon Hospital and Diagnostic Centre in Monirampur upazila, one in Hospital Intersection and the other in Kuada area, New Pragati Hospital & Diagnostic Centre, and New Life Diagnostic Centre.

Meanwhile, Matribhasha Clinic & Diagnostic Centre in Khajura area, and Mohua Clinic in Basundia area were sealed off on Sunday and Wednesday, he added.

Dr Abu Maud also said that the owners of these institutions submitted faulty applications online that’s why they were out of reach.
