Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) [India], October 17 (ANI): A team of health officials on Monday unearthed a sex determination racket in Aligarh.

The officials lifted the lid off the racket during a raid at a private hospital at Vishnu Puri of Thana Quarcy area.

The police nabbed all the accused red-handed and seized the equipment, including the ultrasound machine.

According to administrative officials, the patients were brought by a broker at the hospital where the tests were conducted.

The hospital director, however, dubbed the whole incident to be a conspiracy.
