Allahabad, Oct 27 (UNI) Allahabad High Court today directed the Uttar Pradesh government to publish a general notice to all unauthorised medical practitioners to stop their practice, failing which they shall be prosecuted and their shops sealed.

The court said FIR be lodged against quacks under Indian Penal Code with section 15[3] of the Indian Medical Council Act.

The court further said in case any fraudulent document regarding medical qualification is found, further sections 468 and 471 of IPC be added against the unauthorised practitioners.

Fixing December 11, the court ordered to send a copy of the order to the principal secretary for circulation to all the chief medical officers (CMOs) in UP.
