A mobile court raided a private clinic in Thakurgaon municipality yesterday and detained a fake doctor from there.
The detainee, Rakibul Ahsan, 33, is son of Nurul Islam, who hails from Barishal.
The court led by Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Abdullah Al Mamun also fined clinic owner Afazuddin Bhuian, 57, Tk 20,000 for appointing Rakibul at the hospital without examining his valid documents.
The UNO said on the basis of allegations from the service seekers, who received treatment at the clinic, they conducted a drive at Northern Digital Diagnostic Centre at Purba Goalpara in the municipality around 2:00pm yesterday.
Rakibul, who had been providing treatment to the patients for the last two to three years, tried to flee the scene when UNO Mamun asked him to show his registration from Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council (BMDC).
