Patel is in police custody till June 17. He has been arrested under the Maharashtra Medical Protection Act.

"Patel is just an SSC pass-out," senior inspector Surendrakumar Jaiswal said. "After completing his schooling, he began working with a surgeon in Gujarat where he picked up a few basic medical terms and techniques. As he used steroids, patients got a sudden boost after taking the medicines and felt energetic. This earned him a positive feedback in the area."
