He added that pharmacists, homeopaths and even sweepers were running these private clinics and collecting 100-150 fees from the patient. He further added that these quacks not only offer medicine but administer injections and do sutures.

Vignesh contact details were leaked by the government side which led to the quacks arriving at Vignesh clinic and threatening him.

Tamil Nadu Medical Students Association (TNMSA) has condemned the attack on the MBBS doctor and urged the health department to take action against the quakes in the region.

Editors ViewThe leakage of the identity of Dr. Vignesh to the quacks is a serious issue and the IMA, Tamil Nadu Chapter should take it up with the Health Minister of Tamil Nadu. Nobody will dare to complain against the illegal quacks clinics if their identity are compromised. The Tamil Nadu government should take strict action against the culprit who leaked the identity of Dr. Vignesh to the quacks.
