Indian MD accused of faking immigration medical records

A physician who is under investigation, reports the Vancouver Sun.

The doctor - based in Dehli, India - is a Designated Medical Professional, which means he is accredited by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to perform medical checks on immigration applicants. Patients with some chronic health conditions or with certain infectious diseases can have their immigration applications denied on the grounds that they could endanger Canadians or be an undue burden on our healthcare system.

The investigation stems from the cases of two sick immigrants who were admitted to Canada and found to have obtained false medical records. The Sun claims it is likely that both immigrants are living in British Columbia or the Yukon.
