Woman doctor caught red handed aborting a female foetus

Yamuna Nagar, Haryana:  Daughters are precious, don’t kill them even before they are born – this was the message actor Aamir Khan wanted to spread through the first episode of his much talked-about TV show “Satyamev Jayate.” Aamir talked at length about the alarming statistics on female foeticide and shared case studies – all with the aim of convincing the masses to discourage and help eradicate the social evil. So has the message reached all intended recipients? Well, contrary to the expectations of many, it seems not yet.

In Haryana’s Yamuna Nagar area, a Delhi suburb, a woman doctor has been arrested after she was allegedly caught aborting a girl child during a raid conducted by health department officials.

Priyanka, a BMS doctor from Saharanpur in UP, was caught red-handed when the health department of Yamuna Nagar raided bungalow no 43 in Jagadhari district’s posh Saraswati Colony.  A team from the Red Cross Society also accompanied them.

Priyanka has reportedly been running the clinic, along with her sister Parul, for the last five years. Parul is also a BMS doctor. According to a cleaner at the clinic, the two doctors perform at least six to seven abortions every month. And the foetuses, the worker revealed, are later flushed in toilets.

Thank you Aaamir Khan, Red Cross and Indian Health officials.
