Two Doctors Among Nine Arrested by CBI in Bribery Racket at RML Hospital

The CBI has arrested nine individuals, including medical professionals and staff at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in Delhi, for their involvement in a bribery scandal. The arrested include prominent doctors from the cardiology department.



New Delhi: On Wednesday, the CBI conducted raids at approximately 15 locations, including RML Hospital, culminating in the arrests. Those apprehended include Dr. Parvathgouda, an assistant professor in the cardiology department, Dr. Ajay Raj, a professor of cardiology, and Rajnish Kumar, the senior technical in-charge at the Cath Lab. Additionally, Shalu Sharma, a nurse, and Bhuwal Jaiswal and Sanjay Kumar Gupta, both clerks at the hospital, were arrested alongside representatives from four medical equipment suppliers.

According to the CBI’s first information report (FIR), these individuals were engaged in a criminal conspiracy, violating the Prevention of Corruption Act. They allegedly accepted bribes from patients and medical equipment suppliers. The FIR details instances where Dr. Parvathgouda and Dr. Raj demanded and received bribes from suppliers including Naresh Nagpal, Abrar Ahmed, Akarshan Gulati, Monika Sinha, and Bharat Singh Dalal, to either use or promote their medical products in the hospital.

Similar Scandal in Safdarjung Hospital

The report also accuses the clerks and the nurse of demanding bribes for facilitating medical appointments and investigations at the hospital. This case is not isolated, as it follows a previous scandal at Safdarjung Hospital involving a neurosurgeon and his accomplices, who coerced patients into purchasing overpriced surgical equipment.
