According to India Today, the Lek Ladki Abhiyan, a movement started by her, has carried out 42 sting operations against diagnostic centres and maternity homes conducting sex determination and abortion based on it.

In 2014, the sting operations resulted in no less than 18 convictions leading to 494 cases being lodged, which ended up in 64 convictions.

Lek Ladki Abhiyan is now claiming that a doctor couple who ran an illegal abortion clinic in Marathwada town of Beed, fed the aborted fetuses to dogs.

According to TheHindu:

    The sting revealed a horrifying act — the doctors disposed of aborted foetuses by feeding them to dogs.

    Shailaja Jadhav, who was part of the operation and whose statement was recorded by the divisional magistrate in September 2010, told The Hindu on the phone: “During the operation, Mr. Munde told a five-month pregnant woman, who was acting as our decoy, that there was no legal concern. He said they had dogs downstairs and they would eat the foetuses.”

    We were so shocked that we went down to check and we did find two dogs feeding on aborted foetuses. The whole scene was so revolting I could not sleep for two days,” Ms. Jadhav said.

More the The Deaccan Herald:

    Lek Ladki Abhiyan, the NGO that exposed the doctors’ activities in 2010, claimed that Dr Sudam Munde and Dr Sarawati Munde –who were given six years prison term for a 2010 illegal abortion case— also dumped the foetuses in a nearby well.

    Dr Sudam, an MS (Surgeon), and Dr Sarawati, an MD (gynaecology), were convicted in three cases of Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection Act) registered in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

    Varsha Deshpande from Lek Ladki Abhiyan claimed that Dr Munde had boasted about conducting abortions and feeding the foetuses to five of his dogs during a sting operation by her NGO in 2010.

    They have never been out of bail since 2012….the effective sentence in this case would be around four years,” Deshpande told Deccan Herald.

    She alleged that the Mundes in the last 25 years could have easily carried out close to 90,000 to one lakh abortions. “They used to see 90 patients daily and conduct around 25 operations. People from across Maharashtra used to visit them for abortions,” she said.

    They had four dogs in the hospital complex….15 in their field and also they used to dump aborted foetuses in wells,” she said, adding that her NGO had requested the CID to dig the wells.

Maharashtra: Doctors in Beed feed aborted female foetuses to dogs

Some doctors in Beed are disposing of female foetuses by feeding them to dogs in order to destroy evidence of female foeticide.

The shocking revelation was made by Varsha Deshpande of Lek Ladki Abhiyan, an NGO working against the practice.

Maharashtra’s Public Health Minister Suresh Shetty also admitted he had heard of foetuses thrown to the dogs in Beed.

Deshpande’s allegation is significant as Beed in Marathwada has the worst child sex ratio – 801 girls being born per 1,000 boys (2011 census) – in Maharashtra.
The low percentage of females is attributed to rampant female infanticide in the area.

Last Friday, Vijaymala Patekar (28), was admitted to Dr Sudam Munde’s abortion clinic in Beed when she was six months pregnant. She had four daughters and did not want another. But while her pregnancy was being terminated, she died.

The police have arrested Munde and his wife, but Deshpande said the couple were held earlier too for the same offence and will go scot-free again because of their money power and influence.
“We don’t want this case to be tried in Beed or Marathwada. Let the case be tried somewhere outside as they wield too much influence for the trial to be fair,” she said.

Deshpande claimed her organisation had conducted a sting operation on the doctor in 2010, in which he openly talked about how he was aborting female foetuses and feeding them to his five dogs.

It was then that the police had arrested him, but he was released soon and continued with his activities.

“A person even saw a foetus being fed to the animals. This is known to everyone in Beed, but the police are not taking action as Munde is influential,” Deshpande said.

She added that some other doctors in Beed kept dogs for the same purpose – to avoid the hassle of disposing of the bodies.

Health Minister Shetty said: “I have heard of the practice but have no evidence.”

He added that since the local police seemed to be under a lot of “pressure”, he had decided to ask the crime branch to investigate the latest case.

Substantiating Deshpande’s account of the kind of clout enjoyed by Munde, Shetty said: “Our civil surgeon who had gone to investigate Munde’s hospital was locked up in a room by some goons. They even abused her and asked her to go away.”

The minister said the surgeon while trying to take action against such doctors had been facing threats for more than a year. “We have asked the home department to provide security for our staff,” he said.
