The Muthapudupet police on Sunday arrested a 39-year-old man who had robbed a pregnant woman of gold chain weighing more than five sovereigns. The accused was later produced before a judicial magistrate and sent to prison.

A senior official of the Avadi Police Commissionerate said the complainant, Ms. Priya, had gone for medical treatment to a private clinic located on MES Road, Muthapudupet, on February 2. Regan Prabhu, who had joined the clinic claiming to be a medical specialist, advised the patient to remove her gold chain in the guise of taking some tests. He then sedated the victim and ran away with the valuable.

Based on a complaint filed by the victim, the police found out that the accused was a quack who had joined the clinic based on an advertisement put up on the social media. The police team got a tip off that he was hiding in a house in Sathyamurthy Nagar, Thiruvottiyur. During the investigation the accused said he was not a medical practitioner but had undergone some diploma course in West Bengal.
