13 women made to lie on floor after sterilisation in Madhya Pradesh


At least 13 women were allegedly made to lie on the floor of a primary health centre in Vidisha district after they underwent sterilisation surgery, prompting the authorities to launch a probe into it, an official said on Wednesday.

The incident took place on Monday when the women underwent the procedure at a camp in Gyaraspur primary health centre.

“After I came to know that some women after the surgery had to sleep on the floor of the health centre, I ordered an inquiry,” district Chief Medical and Health Officer Dr. K.S. Ahirwar said.

Notices have been issued to all staff members of the health centre, he said.
