In April, Sunil Pal shared a video on social media that instantly went viral, in which, he is heard saying: “90 percent doctors treating Covid 19 are fraud and evil. They are looting patients by charging heavy fees. I also hear that they steal organs from patients and then kill them. Even those who do not have Covid-19 are given positive test reports by a gang of people. I think all these things need to be inquired as I think itโ€™s a big scam. Please share the video.”

Sunil Pal has also apologized for his remarks and told The Indian Express, โ€œI apologised to those doctors who felt bad by my statement. I am ready to apologise to the court as well. I was only expressing what I am hearing from people around me.โ€

The comedian also took to his Twitter to issue apology and wrote: “Sorry doctor’s ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ #doctorsaresaviours #AIIMS @AmitShah @AmitShahOffice @PMOIndia @ANI @ndtv @ndtvindia @ABPNews @AIIMSRDA @AMCMUMBAI @CMOMaharashtra @OfficeofUT @AUThackeray @rajeshtope11 @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice @DGPMaharashtra”

Here’s the tweet:

Earlier, the Official Association of Resident Doctorsโ€™ shared a video of the comedian in a tweet and wrote, “Doctors are ready to sacrifice everything to save INDIA from COVID-19, and such a statement against the saviours is unacceptable. RDA AIIMS request Hon’ble @AmitShah Ji to put @iSunilPal immediately behind bars under Epidemic Act. He must be punished for it. #doctorsaresaviours.”
