Gurugram doctor, clinic in doc for allegedly offering sex selective abortion in Dubai

GURUGRAM: A Gurugram based private clinic at sector 40 has come out in the focus after a man filed a complaint with Health Department stating that the doctors there offered them services of sex selective abortions by taking them to Dubai.

In his complaint, the man stated that when he took a pregnant relative for an ultrasound to the clinic test on January 6, the doctor (gynaecologist) offered him the option of sex selection. The doctor also offered the facility of abortion in case of a girl child through her contacts in Dubai.

“During the test, the doctor asked her whether she desired a boy or a girl child. The doctor also told the patient that her contacts in Dubai would help her getting a sex determination test done. And in case of a female child, they would also help her get rid of the pregnancy,”  the complainant told TOI. “Shocked at this proposal, I filed a complaint with the Gurugram health department.”

Informing about the case to TOI, Chief medical officer, Gurugram, B K Rajora said, “We will complete the inquiry by the end of next week. And if found guilty, we will take necessary action.”

The health department has issued a show-cause notice to the fertility centre as well as the accused doctor and asked them to record their statements on the matter. It is reported that centre is also going to face action under the PC-PNDT act during the preliminary investigation, the officials found that the gynaecologist working at the clinic is not registered with the PNDT registration for obstetrics ultrasounds

The health department has now initiated a detailed investigation into the matter.

  1. This Act has done a lot of harm to the society and medical community by non implementation of the USG by doctors to its full potential in our country.
    When will our country learn. To progress to lead we have to allow the latest techniques in all the aspects
    Now a days a simple blood test leads to detection of sex in even 6-8weeks in some of the foreign countries.
    That means Govt gonna ban it also

  2. This complaint sounds fishy and revengeful
    Given the PCPNDT atmosphere in India , looks like the family must have insisted on alternative sites to get an abortion
    They have provided us what the doctor replied butprovide us the question family asked to solicit that response
    The family needs counseling and disciplining

  3. It is shocking but even the family who wants the test at any expense (not a decoy arrangement ) should be guestioned and councelled .

  4. Blackmailing has become a business for some now a days , doctors are easy targets,doctors have to compromise as to save they self and clinic PNDT act need to be looked into once again
