BENGALURU: The authorities of the Hoskote Government Hospital said that they did nothing wrong as the medical camp, where some men were allegedly conned into undergoing vasectomy, was held to conduct the procedure.

“It is a Central Government project and we have some targets. We give `200 as an incentive to the motivator, who brings the men. We have given cheques in the name of the beneficiaries,” said a hospital staff. He added that they do not need the permission from the family member of the patients before the surgery as they recover within a day.

“There are no side-effects. If they wish, we can reverse the surgery,” said Dr Rajesh K S, District Health and Family Welfare officer. “We often conduct vasectomy camps based on the government’s direction and it needs more publicity as most men are not aware of it,” he added.

Taluk Health Officer Dr Shakila said they always do a pre-anaesthesia test before surgery. “Those men were not drunk when we did counselling before the vasectomy was done by Dr M V Ramakrishanaiah. Inspector Shivakumar worked as motivator. We are not aware about who this Munikrishna is. We have given ` 1,100 to 14 beneficiaries through cheques that were withdrawn on November 5. We sent some men who have only one child back,” Shakila said.
