EFFINGHAM, Illinois — The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has suspended the license of an Illinois doctor charged with illegally distributing controlled substances.

The Effingham Daily News (http://bit.ly/1pTPJ2b ) reports that the license for Dr. Naeem Kohli of Effingham was suspended last week.

Kohli was charged in March in federal court with health care fraud and illegally dispensing controlled substances such as methadone, oxycodone and hydromorphone. He was licensed by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to prescribe those drugs but is accused of illegally dispensing them to patients.

Kohli has pleaded not guilty and is free on $100,000 bond. His trial is scheduled for Sept. 12 in federal court in Benton.

Kohli's attorney, Richard Sindel, says he plans to fight the charges in court.
