 Uterus Removal Case: Bihar State Human Rights Commission Issues Notice to Hospitals, Nursing Homes

The Bihar State Human Rights Commission issued notice to private hospitals and nursing homes and told the hospitals and nursing homes to reply to the notice soon, where uteruses of hundreds of poor women were removed to claim insurance money.

"The commission is likely to issue notice to the state government in this connection too," an official of the rights body said.

A house committee, which is probing the removal of uteruses of over 16,000 women living below poverty line, will start meeting the victims from September.

The committee has directed district magistrates to provide it detailed information about the private hospitals and nursing homes and the list of victims.

Most of the uteruses were removed to claim insurance money of Rs.30,000 per patient under the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojna, a central government scheme, an official said.

Private hospitals claimed up to Rs.10 crore under the scheme in one year in Begusarai and Rs.12 crore in Samastipur district.

Opposition leaders have demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the issue.
