Though the BMC has received a birth report from an Andheri clinic stating that a boy was born to Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri through surrogacy, the civic body is clueless if and where, a sex determination test was conducted.

The civic body is probing whether the star couple knew the child’s gender before its birth.

Also, the birth report does not mention anything about surrogacy. “Our doctor who went for inspection did not check the registration book. We don’t know who the woman who delivered the child is,” said Dr A Bamne of BMC.

News reports, however, claimed the surrogate was a close relative of the couple.

Advocate Varsha Deshpande whose NGO had filed a complaint with the BMC about the alleged sex determination, said, “The civic body seems to be helping the accused.
