The Sonepat police have arrested a Delhi-based doctor and his two associates for running an illegal sex determination racket from inside a car in a secluded forest land on Delhi-Haryana border.
Dr Subhash Jain of Delhi’s Narela, Vinod Kumar of Nangal Kalan and Manoj Kumar of Sonepat were arrested after a raid by the health department which received a tip-off about their illegal activity.
Deputy civil surgeon Dr Adarsh Sharma said a pregnant woman was sent to the accused, who struck a deal to determine the sex of her foetus for Rs 30,000. The medical reports of the decoy woman were prepared and signed by the civil surgeon.
A pregnant woman was used as decoy to trap the accused doctor and his two associates from a secluded forest land near Delhi-Haryana border.
On Wednesday evening, the woman was asked to reach Ram Devi Chowk in Narela by the accused doctor, where his associate Manoj collected Rs 30,000 from her.
She was then asked to sit in a Maruti Swift Dzire car and taken to a secluded forest land in Sersa village that falls on the border of the two states. A while later, the accused doctor came in his car and asked the women to shift with him.
The health department team and police who were following the car nabbed the accused doctor just as he was about to start the procedure on the woman.
An ultrasound machine along with battery and a generator fitted in the trunk of the doctor’s car were seized and sealed.
Police said the accused had already distributed the money, of which Rs 20,000 had gone into Dr Jain’s pockets.
The three were booked under Sections 3, 4, 5, 6 and 23 of the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PC and PNDT) Act and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC. The police said they were produced in a court and taken on remand to know more about how many such illegal tests they have conducted in the past.
