Sex determination centre unearthed in Ambala, 2 arrested

Ambala, October 16

A team of health officials from Ambala busted a sex determination centre and nabbed two men - a quack and a tout - here today.

The suspects have been identified as quack Surender Singh of Vishnu Vihar in Ambala City and tout Sohan Lal, alias Sonu, of Ambala.

Dr Balwinder Kaur, Deputy Civil Surgeon-cum-nodal officer, PCPNDT, said: “The raid was conducted following a tip-off that some people were involved in sex determination test racket. They charge Rs25,000 to Rs30,000 for sex determination test. We arranged a decoy customer, contacted the tout and the deal was struck at Rs25,000.”

“The tout called the decoy customer at Manav Chowk. She was taken to Surender’s residence in Vishnu Vihar Colony. The quack disclosed the sex of the foetus. After getting signal, the team conducted the raid and arrested the quack and his tout,” Balwinder said. — TNS
