  1. Please take the doctors also into custody for diagnosing fake illnesses of people with arrest warrants. They disgrace the profession and try to circumvent the legal system.

  2. All these buffoon doctors who help wrong doers to escape justice should be arrested. They must be earning more millions being in this business !
