Washington, Dec 15 (UITV/IANS): An Indian American cardiologist based in the US state of Nevada has been arrested on 39 charges of unlawful distribution of prescription opioids and healthcare fraud, officials said.

Devendra Patel, 58, allegedly prescribed opioids such as fentanyl, hydrocodone and oxycodone without legitimate medical cause on a routine basis from May 2014 to September 2017, according to an announcement made by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other law enforcement officials.
