A 47-year-old man has been ar­rested by po­lice for prac­tis­ing al­lopa­thy at Kancheep­u­ram il­le­gally.

Po­lice said Thiru­malaiku­mar, who had stud­ied Sid­dha and acupunc­ture, had al­legedly been giv­ing al­lopa­thy treat­ment for pa­tients for over six months. On re­ceiv­ing an alert, a team of doc­tors led by the joint di­rec­tor of med­i­cal ser­vices con­ducted a raid at the clinic and found no cer­tifi­cates or doc­u­ments. Po­lice filed a case and ar­rested the per­son. He was re­manded to ju­di­cial cus­tody, po­lice said.
