CHANDIGARH: Five doctors were today booked for conducting illegal sex determination test in Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar district in Punjab, officials said.

Acting on a tip off, Department of Health and Family Welfare conducted a sting operation, which led to the registration of cases under the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PC-PNDT) Act and Rules against the five doctors of Suri Scan Centre in Balachur, an official spokesman said.

The case was registered after the doctors took a sum of Rs 20,000 from a decoy patient for illegal sex-determination, the spokesman said here.

The scan centre has been sealed and its owners asked to get all records of the scan centre inspected by Sub-divisional appropriate authority (PC PNDT Act) within 48 hours.

A case has been registered against Dr Ujagar Singh Suri (owner), Dr Bhushan, Dr Sunita, Dr Sandeep and Dr Gurinder Bagga, the spokesman said.
