    I think Deputy Collector is not the Dist magistrate unlike the Dist Collector. I feel even the Dist Collector should not
    detain a respectable lady in the night. For any doubt, whether the accused may likely to escape, House arrest may be done if there is any evidence.
    Violation of Supreme court orders by these officials, will it be sufficient if they are simply transfering them to other place!

  2. Even if the allegations are true, summoning and detaining a woman, that too a doctor at midnight is highly unacceptable. Everything should be done lawfully.

  3. This violation of Supreme court\’s judgement that no doctor or advocate can be arrested without evidence

    Dear professional colleagues

  5. Abortions and MTP are indeed legal in India. Considering the population crisis right now, the last thing we should be discouraging in this country is abortions! Deputy collector seems to be more influenced by current affairs of USA than India 😂
