Portable machines used in sex determination 15.3.2017 DNA: Top News
March 2017: The Pune rural police arrested government doctor Madhukar Shinde for conducting banned sex determination tests on pregnant women. January 2016: The Solapur police nab seven people, including four doctors in a sex determination racket. July 2015: The Kolhapur police arrest seven people for this offence. While pointing to gender determination and female foeticide rackets operating under the radar in Maharashtra, these incidents have another common thread running through them - the use of portable, unregistered sonography machines. These machines, which are imported from countries like China, are often used by unqualified medical practitioners like Ayurvedic and Homoeopathic doctors and even quacks to "diagnose" the sex of the foetus. Adding to the worry of the authorities, these machines, which can be purchased online or at trade fairs for less than a lakh, can be used for sex determination in locations like mobile vans, fields and even houses without the authorities getting a whiff.

Shinde allegedly charged Rs 20,000 for the test using a portable sonography machine and has admitted to conducting 40 such procedures, though the police suspect the real number may be higher. Inspector SB Chavan of the Yavat police station said they had arrested Shinde, who hails from Phaltan in Satara, for allegedly conducting sex determination procedures on pregnant women.
