The Maharashtra Medical Council had suspended the licenses of the doctor couple Aniruddha and Anjali Malpani following complaint from the Advertising Standards Council of India that the couple in their official website had promised childless couples going for IVF treatment guaranteed pregnancy. The website also assured the couples a full refund of their money if the treatment did not work.

The couple approached the High Court challenging the suspension order and sought as interim relief permission to continue treatment of those patients whose procedure has already started.

A division bench of justices S C Dharmadhikari and G S Kulkarni, however, observed that they were not experts and would not want to comment on such a “delicate and sensitive” issue.

The court noted that the couple cannot play with the emotions of childless couples.

The court posted the petition for hearing on April 29 and directed the Maharashtra Medical Council to file their detailed affidavit. PTI SP DK RT RDS
