Police lodges complaint against fake interview of Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman, Medanta Hospital

Gurugram : Medanta Hospital management moved the police and alleged that a fake interview of Dr Naresh Trehan, chairman of Medanta Hospital was published on a website to promote a drug called ‘Cardiotone’ as a cure for hypertension. Following his complaint, an FIR was registered against unknown persons under sections 66-C and 66-D of the IT Act at Cyber Crime, East, Police Station. A senior police officer said that they are investigating the matter.

According to the complaint filed by Deputy Medical Superintendent Dr Vidya Chandrasekaran on behalf of Medanta Hospital, a fake interview of Dr Naresh Trehan, MD and Chairman, Medanta Hospital, has been posted on a website. In this interview, a medicine is being promoted as a cure for hypertension, using Dr Trehan’s name.

“As per our information, this medicine has not been approved by any government regulatory authority. In this way, unregistered medicine is being promoted through this website by showing the photo of Dr Naresh Trehan. The interview has been posted on this website with Dr Naresh Trehan’s photo and statement, while Dr Trehan has never given any such interview. It has been done to cheat the public to earn profits. Also, people’s lives are being put in danger by promoting unapproved medicines,” Dr Chandrasekaran said in his complaint.
