MBBS doctor, has been arrested for illegally running a clinic in South Delhi's Munirka locality, police said today.
Subodh Sarkar, a resident of Gopi apartment in Kishangarh, was posing as a doctor and running 'Mitali' clinic at Mansa Ram Chowk in Munirka.
"Police raided Mitali clinic, where Sarkar was present and claimed himself to be a doctor.

Sarkar completed his diploma in Ayurved (BAMS) from Kolkata. Later, he started posing as an allopathic doctor and began prescribing medicines, the officer said.
