The IVF expert named Dr.Anurag Bishnoi in Hisar has launched a complaint against this man and helped Haryana police to arrest him.
 
The accused who gave his name as Aryan, a resident of Delhi, has been booked under Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act, 1994, complainant Anurag Bishnoi of National Fertility Center in Hisar told IANS.

Aryan sought Bishnoi's services after learning about pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), a medical procedure meant for screening genetic diseases through which sex selection also has reportedly been attempted, Bishnoi said in his complaint.

"Many people demand the same verbally and we never had any proof. This man had all his research done and written on paper. So we had proof this time. I asked him to wait and informed the police," Bishnoi said.

"While his clinic is not authorized to conduct PGD, Aryan's intentions were clear and illegal. The man did not have any reference of a doctor and he wanted PGD for (ensuring) a male child and not for getting a disease diagnosed. He also mentioned about Thailand where PGD is available," Bishnoi said.
