Indian men have been complaining of male ejaculatory disease for years, but a female medical doctor has allegedly injected them in a bid to cure the problem.
The case comes just months after the death of Dr. Kunal Singh, who worked at a Delhi hospital where he treated patients suffering from the disease.
Singh died in January from prostate cancer.
His wife and two other patients were treated for the disease in a hospital in the eastern Indian state of Punjab.
The hospital has been under investigation for allegedly using the female medical staff in order to treat the men, who were allegedly suffering from a “high-risk” group of patients.
“A doctor has been arrested for the alleged illegal treatment of men with the intention to treat them for prostate cancer,” a spokesperson for Punjab’s Health Department told The Washington Post.
“We are trying to investigate this incident, and will take all possible action to ensure that no one is left behind.”
The health ministry has also launched an investigation into the hospital, according to the Post.
Singh’s case is not the first time a female doctor has injected male patients.
In 2016, a female nurse injected a patient with a saline solution to relieve symptoms of a kidney disease in the Netherlands, but the patient died soon after.
The woman, who was a resident in the medical staff at the time, later left the country.
