In its drive against illegal sex determination tests, Haryana health department today conducted raids and got two doctors arrested from Mahendargarh and Bhiwani districts as they were allegedly found involved in the malpractice.

The state is infamous for its skewed sex ratio.

"An ultrasound machine has been sealed and FIRs have been registered against them for violating the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act and the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act," a spokesman of the department said here today.

The raid was carried out jointly by the health department and the Food and Drug Administration.

During the raid, the Health department team and the police found medicines, MTP instruments and records which had not been updated.
