Identified as Naresh Sharma Gorakhpuria, the accused has faced arrest in the past as well in connection with a similar case and he got bail around a fortnight ago.

The raiding team sent a decoy customer to the accused who demanded Rs 40,000 and was arrested red-handed. The team comprised Kaithal PNDT nodal officer Gaurav Punia and Hisar’s Anil Ahuja. They said health authorities in Kaithal had got information about Sharma’s activities.

Sharma got Rs 40,000 from the decoy customer transferred electronically and the moment she reached the accused’s nursing home yesterday, officials who were waiting outside arrested him. However, his ultrasound machine was not found, indicating that his aide dashed with the machine.

Barwala SHO Kuldeep Singh said the accused had been taken on a two-day remand and his ultrasound machine couldn’t be seized. The police have booked him under the PC-PNDT Act, Sections 420,120-B of the IPC and also under the Indian Medical Council (IMC) Act.
