BARIPADA:  Mahuldiha police registered a case against the quack who had administered livestock injections to a man reportedly to cure him of back pain. He has been identified as Biswanath Behera (62) of Kantipal in Keonjhar district.

Claiming to be a doctor of Thakurmunda community health centre (CHC), Behera administered the injections to 55-year-old Srikant Mohanta of Mahuldiha who had been suffering from acute back pain for the last few years.
