A man posing as a doctor robbed a 25-year-old patient of her gold jewellery at Aditya Birla Hospital on Saturday. The suspect told her to remove the ornaments before he “administered” an injection. According to Hinjewadi police,the woman,a resident of Thergaon,was admitted to the hospital on Friday. Senior police inspector Parshuram Patil of Hinjewadi police station said,“As per the complainant,on Saturday morning,a person wearing a doctor’s apron,entered her room and told her that he had to administer an injection and for that she would have to remove her gold ornaments. She did so and kept them under her pillow. He asked her to turn on her side. “The suspect even injected a needle into her neck but did not remove it.
