Dr Ganesh Anil Anirudhra who is facing 319 charges of allegedly defrauding the medical schemes and the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) is to appear in the Brits Magistrates Court on Thursday (February 21).

The “fugitive” Anirudhra was bust by the police’s elite unit, the Hawks at his place of work in December 2012 at George Mukhari Hospital in Garankuwa near Tshwane. He is alleged to have made illegitimate claims to the Bonitas Medical Scheme and the Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund between 2008 and 2012. He is alleged to have made fictitious claims from the Fund for ‘injured people’ whom he did not treat.  

He allegedly made 218 illegal claims to Bonitas. Dr Anirudhra was previously convicted in 1989 and 1991 for fraud. It is also alleged that he practised as a gynaecologist while only registered as a general practitioner.

Anirudhra is out on a bail of R20 000.

The Compensation Fund is a public entity of the Department of Labour. The Fund provides cover for workers injured and/or diseases sustained at work.
