Midwife is key player in sex test racket: Probe

Jhajjar, June 28

The preliminary probe into the inter-state sex-determination racket has revealed that the sister of a tout, who is in police custody, is the key player in the racket and she used to contact customers in UP, Delhi and Haryana.

“The woman, who is a midwife, used to crack the deal with customers and then ask her brother, Chand Singh, to take the customers to Noida (UP), where a BAMS doctor used to conduct ultrasound test. The woman might have been indulging in this illegal trade for several years as she worked at a Bahadurgarh-based private hospital whose owner was convicted under the PC-PNDT Act,” said Dr Achal Tripathi, Deputy Civil Surgeon (PNDT).

Tripathi said the revelation had been made by the tout during police interrogation. The woman and the doctor are absconding and the police had carried out raids at their possible hideouts at Haridwar, Ghaziabad, Noida, Sonepat, Meerut and Delhi. — TNS
