JAIPUR: Ravi Singh, who has base in 15 districts and in neighbouring states including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya PradeshHaryana and Punjab arrested from Khetri of Jhunjhunu district on Monday on charge of having involvement in sex determination activities. Besides, a nurse from Hathras in Uttar Pradesh has also been arrested.

His modus operandi is quite unique. He has his agents who kept protecting him from the PCPNDT cell. The PCPNDT cell had tried to trap him in decoy operations at least six times but he escaped all the time. His gang had a portable sonography machine. PCPNDT cell officials said that he has gang members who have different works — one talks to the client, another brings the client to him. There are others who keep portable sonography machine and he himself remains vigilant and alert all the time. He never stays at a place for 10 minutes after conducting the sonography.

PCPNDT officials said that earlier also, he had been arrested twice but he continued conducting illegal sonography for sex determination of fetus. Officials said that he is 10th class fail but he knows how to conduct sonography. He had worked as a helper in a private hospital in Delhi and some other places where he learnt how to conduct sonography. But, whithin no time he has become kingpin of a gang involved in sex selection, the PCPNDT cell officials said.

State appropriate authority (PCPNDT) Navin Jain said, Ravi Singh is a resident of Singhana of Jhunjhunu district. He is active in 15 different districts and four neighbouring states — Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana.

The PCPNDT cell took help of Jhunjhunu district collector Dinesh Kumar and superintendent of police Manish Agarwal to nab him. He was arrested in a decoy operation conducted in Jhunjhunu district.

Besides, PCPNDT cell conducted a decoy operation in Hathras on Monday. They arrested a private hospital nurse who allegedly fooled her clients from Bharatpur, Dholpur and Alwar by saying that there is a female fetus in the womb of pregnant women. The PCPNDT officials said that she advises her clients to undergo feticide. But, in reality, she conducts general sonography and she herself does not know the sex of fetus. PCPNDT cell officials arrested owner of private hospital, who was absconding since August 2016 in Mathura. Officials said that in the hospital, a nurse was involved in sex determination activities.
