KATHMANDU — The Central Bureau of Investigation (CIB) of Nepal Police has so far arrested 36 medical doctors practising at various healing centers and facilities from 10 districts on the charge of using fake academic certificates for medical studies.

The CIB had launched the Operation Quack a few months ago to crack down on medical professionals who had allegedly obtained medical degrees and Nepal Medical Council licences by using fake academic credentials.

In the second phase of the ‘Operation Quack’ launched by the CIB with active participation of the Nepal Medical Council and Higher Secondary Education Board for the past four months, the police arrested 36 doctors — 13 from Kathmandu, two from Lalitpur, one in Jhapa, one in Sunsari, three in Morang, two in Dhanusha, nine in Parsa, three in Chitwan, one in Kaski and one in Dang. Of them six are females.

According to preparatory investigation by CIB, the doctors were found to have used fake intermediate or +2 certificates for abroad medical studies mainly in India.

CIB said the intermediate or +2 certificates of 35 of the 36 doctors are from Patna, India.

The Nepal Medical Council and the Higher Secondary Education Board have been assisting police to carry out the operations.

Meanwhile, Nepal Medical Council (NMC), the regulatory body for all medical doctors, has started investigations into the educational certificates of all 16,000 doctors to whom it has provided practicing licenses so far.
