What is more baffling that he used to work at Jeevan Hospital, Karmanghat, Orange Hospital, and LB Nagar as a Medical Administrator.
"After opening his clinic, he appointed Dr. Subba Rao. Roa possessed a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery degree. In September-2019, Subba Rao passed away. After his death SK. Ahmed, (Ayurvedic Doctor), who is well acquainted with the Subba Rao used to attend the clinic and giving treatment to patients by introducing himself as an Ayurvedic Doctor," he said.
Further, the accused Saikumar was using doctor V. Subba Rao's name on the prescription slip, though he passed away in September-2019. "During the course of investigation, one stethoscope, one BP Checking machine, nine medial prescription books, one rubber stamp, some medicines, one Sai clinic signboard was seized," he said.
