Stating that it has received various complaints about the existence of unqualified doctors and pharmacists in Dimapur and other parts of Nagaland, the GPRN/NSCN today said it would verify authenticity of licences and documents of those medical practitioners and medical stores who were suspected to have obtained degrees and licences through fraudulent means.
The GPRN/NSCN’s crime control cell (CCC) secretary Z. Lhokuto Chishi, in a statement routed through MIP, said such practice was tarnishing the image of men and women in the noble profession. “Fake medical certificates procured from unrecognised medical institutions in India and abroad have produced many fake doctors and pharmacists and these fake medical practioners are doing roaring business,” the crime control cell of the GPRN/NSCN stated.
It also said that health of the common man was seriously jeopardised including the huge medical bills. “There have been many instances of erroneous diagnosis with faulty medication which many lucky survivors can testify,” the GPRN/NSCN’s CCC said, adding in the interest of health and welfare of the general public, it would conduct verification.
In connection with this, the GPRN/NSCN has solicited assistance and cooperation from all the sections of the society.
