Dehradun police has uncovered a racket involving fake Bachelor of of Ayurvedic Medicine


The ongoing investigation by the special investigation team (SIT) of the Dehradun police has uncovered a racket involving fake Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) degrees. More than 500 individuals posing as Ayurveda doctors were found operating health clinics in Uttarakhand, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh. Out of the identified culprits, 147 were practicing in Uttarakhand, with 22 arrests made so far.

The main accused, Imlakh Khan, facilitated the acquisition of fake BAMS degrees from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Health Sciences in Bengaluru for a fee of around Rs 5 lakh per certificate. These fraudulent doctors registered with the Indian Medical Council’s Uttarakhand chapter and began practicing.

The investigation began in January with the arrest of two fake BAMS doctors and Khan’s brother in Dehradun. Khan himself was arrested by the Uttarakhand Special Task Force in Rajasthan, leading to the seizure of over 600 fake medical degrees and certificates from his residence in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. The investigation has also revealed the presence of approximately 350 fake Ayurveda doctors in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana. The SIT is collaborating with authorities in these states to apprehend the remaining suspects.
