    Racket In GMCH Duping Patients: FIR Lodged

    The hospital authority with the help of the minor has already identified the fraud and shared his image with the police

    Guwahati: Amidst the global pandemic and when ICUs are filled with COVID 19 patients, racketeers in the city have been duping many in the pretext of allotting ICU seats to patients in Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) here.

    The incident came to light when a minor reached the GMCH superintendent Abhijit Sarma seeking the latter’s help. She informed the superintendent that a person was demanding Rs 10,000 from her family to allot an ICU seat for her mother who was sick.

    Her mother was admitted to the general ward of the hospital and waiting for surgery.

    “A racketeer demanded Rs 10000 to fast track it. This fraud is duping innocent patients in the name of giving ICU, paying cabin, giving dates for surgery at GMCH by demanding Rs 5000 to Rs 10000. An FIR has been lodged with GMCH police station too. Will not relent till he is arrested and put behind bars,” said Sarma.

    The hospital authority with the help of the minor has already identified the fraud and shared his image with the police. The minor has reportedly identified the person after going through the CCTV footage of the hospital.
    Police said that a manhunt is on to nab the accused.
