Tribune reports that the tout took the decoy patient to Dr ND Arora of Heart Care and Diagnostics Centre where an ultrasound was performed.The teams sealed the ultrasound room at that centre. While Dr Arora was handed over to the Haridwar administration.
TOI reports that after a complaint was filed by the additional chief medical officer (ACMO) Ashok Kumar, the police finally on Monday, registered a case against the cardiologist and one of his staff under section 315 of the IPC (act done with intent to prevent child being born alive or to cause it to die after birth), which entails imprisonment of up to 10 years.
“The raid was conducted on November 5, but a case was not registered against Arora then due to lack of proper documents,” a police officer told the daily, adding that the case has finally been registered.
