BARNALA: Detecting a case of sex selection , police have registered a case of medical termination of pregnancy (MTP) against a private hospital and has sealed the ultrasound machine of the hospital. The sex determination test was allegedly conducted with a machine having been already sealed some time back and the test was conducted after altering the seal.

A Barnala-resident pregnant woman had reached a private hospital where she was told that she is bearing a female child. The woman was offered termination of pregnancy if she did not want the female child. Accordingly an abortion was being conducted when the condition of the woman deteriorated and she was referred to another hospital where the illegal act came to light, Barnala SSP Sanehdeep Sharma said.

Barnala civil surgeon Dr Renu informed police, who registered a case. DSP Swaran Singh has been asked to conduct a thorough probe, Sharma said.
