Karnal, December 1
After a chase of around 70 km, a team of the Health Department arrested four members, including two women, of a sex determination racket from Panipat late on Monday.
They used to get the sex determination test done from Gangoh in UP with the help of a man who uses a portable ultrasound machine. However, the man from Gangoh managed to escape with the machine.
The accused have been identified as Rajwanti of Samalkha in Panipat, Suman of Gharaunda, Manoj of Rana Majra village and Sumit of Samalkha. A case has been registered against them under various Sections of the PCPNDT Act in Panipat, he added.
Dr Yogesh Sharma, Civil Surgeon, said that Rs 22,000 which was given to the decoy customer has been recovered from them.
“There was a tip-off that a sex determination gang is active here. A team led by Dr Naresh Kardwal, who is also a nodal officer of PCPNDT programme, was constituted. The team members arranged a woman as decoy customer and approached the middleman in Panipat. Accompanied by other gang members, he took the decoy to Gangoh where another person got the sex determined,” said the Civil Surgeon. — TNS
