Doctors are not allowed to do sex determination. Despite this known fact the lure of money is so high that many succumb to it. This exactly happened with a gynecologist and a general physician in Okhla. And actually they were trapped during a sting operation conducted by officials.
It is being reported that the decoy patients were sent to a clinic in Sarita Vihar to find out whether everything was honky dory there. What was found later certainly not only stumped the officials but also the residents. Interestingly, the officials got wind of it as they were informed by one doctor about how a tout was taking patients for the purpose of sex determination.
The authorities’ suspicion turned right as they came to know that the clinic was readily providing sex determination test of the fetus. After cracking the case, the officials recovered Rs 14,000 marked currency. Also, the two ultrasound machines used for this purpose too were sealed.
The development has come in the background of kidney racket being busted in a reputed hospital in the locality. A few arrests too has been made in the case with latest reports pointing out that even doctors of the hospital were questioned to get to the depth of the story.
