A doctor has been booked in Vangani in Thane district for allegedly treating COVID-19 patients without permission.

A doctor has been booked in Vangani in Thane district for allegedly treating COVID-19 patients without permission from state and civic authorities, police said on Saturday.

Kulgaon police station assistant inspector Sandeep Nigade said the doctor, who runs a small hospital, has been charged under IPC, Epidemic Diseases Act, and Disaster Management Act provisions, though he has not been arrested.

A video had gone viral a couple of days ago in which the doctor was seen claiming that he could "cure" COVID-19 with the help of homeopathic medicines, after which the local health department filed a case, he added.
