Rajasthan Medical Council suspends registration of Dr Aruna Singhi

Monday, July 25, 2011

Rajasthan Medical Council (RMC) on Friday suspended the registration of Chittorgarh-based gynaecologist, Dr Aruna Singhi, who allegedly agreed to abort the foetus of a girl child for Rs 10,000.

Chittorgarh chief medical and health officer Dr Ravi Prakash Sharma, district PCPNDT (Pre-Conception and Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques) coordinator Shafiq Iqbal and an NGO had planned a ‘decoy operation’.

They prepared a pregnant woman who asked Dr Aruna Singhi for sex selection and abortion. The officials of the department claimed that the doctor had accepted Rs 10,000 for sex selection, which was recovered from her possession.

“The ‘decoy operation’ was conducted some six months ago. The accused had asked for money for sex selection and she also agreed to abort the child for which she demanded more money,” Dr Ravi Prakash Sharma has said.

Rajasthan has witnessed a decrease in sex ratio. In the 2001 Census, the sex ratio was 909. This figure has slipped to 883 as per the 2011 Census. [Source: ToI]
