A woman lodged an FIR against her daughter-in-law and her parents for allegedly aborting a pregnancy, after they realised that it was a female in the sex determination test.

"Manju Tiwari, a resident of Sector 62, has lodged an FIR against her daughter-in-law Shweta, her parents and her sisters among others, alleging that Shweta aborted the pregnancy after a sex determination test," said Baljit Singh, SHO, Sector 58 police station.
