A gynecologist at a state-run hospital in Athens was arrested on Saturday for demanding and receiving a bribe from a couple to deliver their baby.

According to reports, the doctor was arrested at the hospital after the couple had paid him 650 euros in marked bills.

During a search of his office, police found the marked bills hidden in the ceiling.

The doctor was scheduled to appear before a prosecutor later on Saturday.
