Karnataka Doctor Arrested For Performing 900 ‘Illegitimate Abortions’

Bengaluru Police apprehended a doctor and his lab technician accused of conducting approximately 900 illicit abortions over the past three years, as disclosed by officials on Monday.

Dr. Chandan Ballal and lab technician Nisar purportedly demanded around ₹30,000 for each abortion, performed at a hospital in the district headquarters town of Mysuru. Both were taken into custody last week. The hospital’s manager, Meena, and receptionist, Rizma Khan, were arrested earlier this month.

Last month, police dismantled a sex-determination and female foeticide operation, arresting Shivalinge Gowda and Nayan Kumar in the district headquarters town of Mandya.
