Remand of docs suspected of using fake certificates extended

KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu District Court on Monday extended the remand issued for 36 doctors arrested on charge of using fake certificates.

The Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police has been carrying out an investigation against them arrested under its Operation Quack.

Earlier on June 19, the CIB had presented them before the Kathmandu District Court and received a remand for five days.

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

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