A doctor in Gujarat's Ahmedabad has been arrested after he conducted on a girl who was five months pregnant and then throwing her foetus in the garbage on his way home.

The accused doctor, identified as Chetan Shah, was treating the pregnant 15-year-old girl, who was raped and impregnated by a 19-year-old boy, identified as Sunil Sargara. The boy was booked for rape and other relevant sections of the POCSO Act. Narrating the incident, a senior police official reportedly stated, "Her lover had got her pregnant and fled to Uttar Pradesh. The girl abandoned the child in a garbage dump where it was eaten by scavengers. Police are investigating two more cases for newborns abandoned in the last 20 days, at Amraiwadi and Odhav." The police apparently received a tip-off that the foetus had been dumped in a garbage and received the registration number of the car of the accused as well.

"It belonged to Dr Chetan Shah, who runs Keval Medical Centre, at the Vatva GIDC. During his interrogation he confessed that on July 6, a minor who was 5-months pregnant had come to his clinic. He aborted the fetus and threw it near Aavkar Hall. The girl then told us that Sunil Sargara had made her pregnant. He has been sent for a pre-arrest Covid test," the official added.
