A case of fraudulent medical practice by a doctor has come to light in North Lakhimpur of Assam.

The doctor, Abinash Saikia has been continuing medical practices in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts using the registration number of other doctors.

The fraud doctor, who introduced himself as MBBS, DVL, FAM, Fellowship in Aesthetic Medicine, specialist in skin, hair, nail and STDs, consultant dermatologist and cosmetologist, had been continuing medical practices on dermatology using the registration number 19947 (Assam Medical Council) of Dr Kiran Sonowal who is the assistant professor, Department of Orthopaedics, Jorhat Medical College Hospital.

It came to notice of Dr Kiran Sonowal who contacted Saikia over the matter. Saikia reportedly told Dr Kiran Sonowal that it was a printing error quoting another registration number i.e. 19447.

Abinash Saikia also has been practising Dermatology in North Lakhimpur, at Town Medical Hall using the same registration number 19447.

Meanwhile Dr Kiran Sonowal has also filed a complaint to the Joint Director of Health, Dhemaji against Saikia. In North Lakhimpur, the Durniti Birodhi Yuva Shakti, Asom on Friday lodged an FIR at North Lakhimpur Police Station against the fake doctor.

Addressing the media persons, the state president of the organization, Dharma Kanta Gogoi demanded the Lakhimpur and Dhemaji district administrations to launch an inquiry against the fake doctor.
