Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The local crime branch has registered a case against a doctor posted at the National Hospital in Phanda for duping a man to the tune of Rs 11.65 lakh on the pretext of making investment in the hospital, officials said on Sunday.
Deputy commissioner of police (crime) Shrutkirti Somwanshi said that the complainant Vikas Bilthare approached crime branch on Saturday. He said that one of his acquaintances Dr Azhar Ansari was posted at National Hospital in Phanda.
