Daily Mail: The sickening practice was exposed in the town of Beed, in Maharashtra - the state with the worst child sex ratio in the country. So-called gender genocide was blamed for last year's appalling census figures, which showed that just 801 girls were being born for every 1,000 boys. By keeping dogs, doctors can get rid of bodies without having to dispose of them through official channels. It means that the true extent of illegal sex-selection abortion in the town - and elsewhere in India - is being hidden
The shocking revelation was made by Varsha Deshpande of Lek Ladki Abhiyan, a charity working against the practice. She claimed her organisation had conducted a sting operation Dr Sudam Munde 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.
