Fake doctor, responsible for 2 deaths, detained under PD act

Hyderabad: A man who posed as a doctor and resulted in the death of two persons was detained under the PD Act on Monday. The accused, Polkampally Sai Kumar, even though he is an Intermediate pass out, had been treating patients and prescribing drugs to them at a clinic for eight years at Meerpet and also at some corporate hospitals.

According to the police, Sai Kumar finished intermediate from a Sai Chaitanya junior college in 2004 and began work as an assistant at an operation theatre in Srinivas Hospital in Santhoshnagar where he learned some basic knowledge about medical treatment. Using this bare bottom information, he hatched a plan to earn money.

He fraudulently got the medical registration number of another doctor and began to call himself Sai Kumar MBBS (OSM) MD (General). Once he gained reputation from the medical service he worked at hospitals such as Radhika Hospital at Balapur crossroads and Orange Hospital at LB Nagar. He would college Rs 150 from patients and for the commission would recommend them to corporate hospitals and medical labs. Two persons, a man and a woman, he 'treated' at the Orange Hospital LB Nagar during the COVID-19 pandemic died.

The police then charged him with culpable homicide not amounting to murder at the LB Nagar police station under sections 304-II, 336, 384, 420 r/w 34 of the IPC. To prevent him from causing more harm, the PD act was evoked against him, and after a manhunt he was taken into custody and sent to Cherlapally jail.
