A team of Jhajjar health authorities on Wednesday busted a gender test racket with the arrest of a man.
Deputy civil surgeon, prenatal diagnostic techniques, Dr Anchal Tripathi said they got a tip-off that a tout, Sumit of Wazirpur, was involved in a sex-determination racket.
“A decoy was sent to him, who cracked a deal in ₹70,000. He took the decoy to Ghaziabad at a house where the doctor conducted an ultrasound. He was arrested when he returned. From his phone records, it came to the fore that two staff nurses, Neelam and Sarita Dahiya, and another tout Sonu of Bindawas were also involved in this racket,” the doctor added.
Beri police have booked the accused under sections 18,29, 3A, 4, 5 (1)(a), 6(a) of the PNDT Act and sections 120-B, 34 and 420 of the IPC.
