Quack exposed during alimony case in Ahmedabad | Ahmedabad News

AHMEDABAD: A man who defied his wife’s plea and demanded an increase in alimony from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 ended up being a quack in Gujarat High Court and is on the run.
Khadia Police on Monday filed a complaint against Palkesh Gajjar, 39, who ran three clinics in Isanpur, Ghodasar and Raipur districts, under IPC Section 336 (Endangering Life and Safety of Others) along with Section 30 of the Gujarat Medical Practitioner Act (prohibition of practicing medicine by unregistered persons).
According to the details of the case, Gajjar’s wife Dipali Thakkar had filed a lawsuit in Gujarat High Court in January 2020 challenging a family court order ordering Rs 5,000 alimony for the couple’s minor son.
She tried to increase the alimony amount to Rs 10,000 in the Supreme Court.
During the hearing on March 17, 2023, she submitted to the Supreme Court through her lawyer that Gajjar is a doctor and that the amount of Rs.5,000 for the education of her minor son is small.
She also alleged that Gajjar did not provide regular maintenance.
The case took a turn on April 20 when Gajjar, through his lawyer, said he had no degree.
“It was determined in court that Defendant 1 (Palkesh Gajjar) held a BAMS degree and a degree in Naturopathy and Yoga (NDDY).
However, defendant number 2’s counsel has disputed this fact and defendant number 2 today (20.
In addition, his wife submitted photos of his clinic “Shivam Davakhanu”, in which Gajjar was named as a doctor.
The HC directed the police to check the fact and when the police checked one of the clinics in Raipur they found it closed.
Inspector KP Chavda of Khadia Police said they investigated further and found that Gajjar had no degree, after which a case was filed.
Gajjar had closed all three clinics about a month and a half ago and fled, they said.
Chavda said: “Gajjar had also argued in the family court that he was not a doctor but a salesman, so he could not afford to pay Rs 10,000 in alimony.”
Inspector KP Chavda said they tried to arrest him.
