Bhubaneswar: The Khurda district health administration on Saturday sealed a pathological laboratory in Bhubaneswar for running illegally without registration.

The action came a day after the Orissa High Court had directed the Director of Medical Education and Training (DMET) to file an affidavit on the number of the nursing homes, private hospitals, diagnostic centres and laboratories that are functioning illegally in Bhubaneswar and to seal them immediately.

A special squad of the Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO), Khurda, Dr Kamalini Mohapatra raided the Arogyam X-Ray and Patholab at Damana Chhak to find that it was operating without registration.
