In a shocking medical racket that resulted in the loss of lives, authorities have discovered a link between a fake hospital in South Delhi and a local pharmacy. According to sources, the fake hospital would receive referrals from the pharmacy, leading to patients being operated on by unqualified doctors. The police investigation into the arrested suspects led them to the pharmacy, where they found the owner, Julfikar, operating without a valid license. It was revealed that the last patient who died at the Agarwal Medical Centre was referred to the hospital by Julfikar.
Julfikar, a resident of Lal Kuan in the Prahladpur area, was apprehended from his pharmacy and subsequently arrested after interrogation. This week, four individuals, including Dr. Neeraj Agarwal, his wife Pooja Agarwal, Dr. Jaspreet Singh, and former laboratory technician Mahender Singh, were arrested from the Agarwal Medical Centre following the deaths of two patients who underwent surgeries. The families of the deceased patients have accused Dr. Agarwal of forging documents and performing a wide range of surgeries despite being a physician.
Sources reveal that Julfikar sold both homeopathic and allopathic medicines at his clinic-cum-medicine shop in Sangam Vihar, despite lacking a valid license. He had contacted Dr. Neeraj Agarwal, obtaining his number from cards distributed by the Agarwal Medical Centre employees in Sangam Vihar. Eventually, they established an arrangement in which Julfikar would refer patients requiring kidney and gall bladder stone operations to the clinic. He also sent pregnant women for delivery and abortion procedures.
Dr. Neeraj Agarwal agreed to pay Julfikar 35% of the amount billed by each patient, with the money being transferred through UPI. This arrangement has been ongoing for approximately six years. The most recent patient referred by Julfikar was Asgar Ali, who tragically passed away during treatment. Asghar Ali had been admitted to the clinic in 2022 for gallbladder surgery, allegedly performed by Pooja Agarwal and Mahendra.
According to police sources, there have been at least nine complaints against Dr. Agarwal, Pooja, and the Agarwal Medical Centre since 2016. Tragically, seven of these cases involved patients who died as a result of medical negligence. The investigation into this medical racket is ongoing.
