Dr. Sandeep Sherlekar, a doctor based in Maryland, was reported to have been discovered dead under mysterious circumstances while working with Hillary Clinton’s medical team.
This June, Sherlekar had been part of a specialized medical team to remove a blood clot from the former secretary of state’s brain.
After the discovery, a startling new report spread around Kremlin. It was prepared by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR). The report said that the infamously named “Clinton Body Count” has increased after the discovery of the doctor.
According to What Does it Mean, on June 30, Clinton had to go through an emergency brain surgery conducted by Islamic neurosurgeon Amjad Anaizi. The publication reported that Dr. Sherlekar was the on-call anesthesiologist attending Clinton’s surgery.
However, exactly 3 months later, on September 30, the doctor was reportedly found dead in his office. It was said that after being named in a federal indictment, Dr. Sherlekar, in all possibility, killed himself.
“We are ready to officially call it a suicide and we’re confident that the medical examiner’s office will determine the manner of death was a suicide,” said Sgt. Andrew Alcorn.
“There was video inside the business that we reviewed that [shows] the doctor was alone at the time of his death and leading up to it, and he also left several notes.”
Recently, it was reported that a few doctors were indicted by the grand jury for agreeing to refer urine specimens to a testing lab for evaluation while receiving $1.37 million in return. Charges were made on conspiring to defraud the IRS, committing health care fraud, and making false statements on patient medical records.
Snopes then reported that Dr. Sherlekar being the newest member of the Hillary Clinton body count is absolutely false. According to the publication, the Democratic nominee underwent no emergency brain surgery on June 30, 2016.
There was no secret operation, nor was there any contact between the former secretary of state and the Maryland-based doctor.
