Dr Ganesh Anil Anirudhra who is facing 319 charges for allegedly defrauding the private medical aid schemes and the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) will appear in the Brits Magistrates Court on October 2 (Wednesday). Anirudhra is expected to plead.

The “runaway” doctor is out on a bail of R20 000.

Dr Anirudhra is alleged to have evaded the law for years. He was arrested by the police’s elite unit, the Hawks at his place of work in December 2012 at the George Mukhari Hospital in Garankuwa near Tshwane, in Gauteng Province. Dr Anirudhra is alleged to have made fraudulent claims against the private Bonitas Medical Scheme and the Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund between 2008 and 2012.

He is alleged to have left a trail of fictitious claims against the Fund claiming to have treated ‘injured workers’ whom he did not treat.  

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

No less than 15 witnesses are lined-up to testify against Dr Anirudhra.

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.
