The court recorded that the report had declared that mechanisms administering medical practice in India were ill-equipped to identify such cases which permitted such doctors to practice in India. It designated the member secretary of Delhi State Legal Services Authority, Sanjeev Jain, to verify the name and address of this doctor, carry out an immediate scrutiny and file a report within four days, mentioned TNN report.
