India, Covid patient transport in ambulance: Police arrest man accused of speculation
New Delhi police have arrested Mimoh Kumar Bundwal on charges of improperly charging the daughter of an Indian citizen suffering from Covid for medical transport by ambulance.

The doctor was arrested by the Inder Puri police, who charged the man with violation of Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.
