‘Foetus selling’ doctor arrested from Mehmoodabad


Mehmoodabad police on Thursday claimed to have arrested a doctor who aborted foetuses and sold them to hospitals for research. Briefing the media, DSP Saeed Rind said police raided Al Mustafa Clinic in Mehmoodabad and arrested Dr Nuzhat Aslam for allegedly aborting foetuses and selling them to various private hospitals for research. Quoting the doctor, Rind said she aided unmarried couples in aborting their unwanted children. The DSP said the doctor sometimes threw the foetuses away and sometimes sold them to various private hospitals for research. According to her statement, she used a chemical that can keep the foetuses fresh up to seven years. The police officer said the raid was made successful with the cooperation of a Suzuki driver who had been hired by the doctor to dump the foetuses. Rind said the doctor has been shifted to the Women’s Police Station for further investigation. On the other hand, sources in the Mehmoodabad police said the doctor was arrested the previous night from the Tariq Clinic in Chakra Goth, Korangi.
