Two doctors from Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC), Nagpur, were caught red-handed by Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) while accepting a bribe of Rs 3,000 from a man on Monday.  The two GMCH doctors – Dr Vandana Iyer (35) and Dr Swanand Shailesh Pradhan (26) are from the Department of Ophthalmology.

Sandeep Pande (47) had taken his wife to GMCH as she was suffering from an eye ailment. Iyer and Pradhan told Pande that they would need to administer Avastin injection in his wife’s eye and took Rs 3,000 from him for the same. The doctors gave a receipt of Rs 140 to Pande, who was told that the injection costs Rs 24,000 and that’s the reason that they administer the injection in eights parts and charge Rs 3,000 from each patient. The doctors again demanded Rs 3,000 from Pande.

Pande got suspicious and spoke to some doctors he knew, who told him that issuing a receipt of Rs 140 in lieu Rs 3,000 was illegal. Pande then contacted the Anti Corruption Bureau in Nagpur. The ACB laid out a trap and caught the two doctors red-handed as they accepted the cash from Pande. While Pradhan was immediately arrested, Iyer was not arrested as a women cannot be arrested past sunset and before sunrise. A case has been registered against Iyer and Pradhan under relevant sections of Prevention of Corruption Act at Ajni Police Station.
