Relatives of patients, lured by the “cost-effective” treatment plan, would wait endlessly in the corridors of Agarwal Medical Centre, say cops – a day after arresting four people, including two “doctors” who were allegedly performing surgeries without holding the requisite qualifications.
They would allegedly prescribe random medicines and injections, and even administer a jab or two to the patients.

In most cases, there would be post-surgical complications, and sometimes the patient would deteriorate. If the condition appeared unsalvageable, an ambulance would be on standby to rush the patient to nearby hospitals like Safdarjung or AIIMS.
Just when the relatives would start enquiring about the wellbeing of their patients, the housekeeping and nursing staff of Agarwal Medical Centre would claim senior doctors were to arrive for the round. ‘Dr Pooja’, wife of the owner of the hospital, Dr Neeraj Agarwal, an MBBS doctor; and ‘Dr Mahender’, a lab technician, would enter the scene wearing aprons and start checking on the patients.
