The doctor was running this centre at 4/8 Marla by the name of Bhatia Diagnostic. He has been sent to 2-day remand by a local court.

Te team was keeping an eye on the ultrasound centre and on Sept. 2 a probe was carried out against the centre and the allegations of running the centre without registration were found to be true. His Form F also had several lacunae.  He was booked under PCPNDT Act. This is the third time the doctor has been booked for such violations. He had been sentenced to 3 yrs’ prison earlier but had got a stay from the HC where the matter is sub-judice. reporter
