An RMP doctor in Rajapur mandal of the district has been booked by the Rajapur police for allegedly conducting abortion on a minor girl.
Mahbubnagar: An RMP doctor in Rajapur mandal of the district has been booked by the Rajapur police for allegedly conducting abortion on a minor girl.
According to reports from local sources in Rajapur, it is learnt that a minor girl from Ediganpally village had approached Mahender Goud, an RMP Doctor, for conducting abortion. Agreeing to it, the RMP doctor admitted the girl in his clinic and administered saline to her before taking up the abortion.
However, his attempts were thwarted by District Medical Health Officials from Mahbubnagar. On a tip off, the DMHO officials from the district headquarters immediately rushed to the clinic and lay siege to it.
The RMP doctor had already fled the scene by the time the officials reached the clinic. “Upon receiving information about an illegal abortion on a minor girl, we have ceased the clinic and locked it.
We have also booked a case against the RMP doctor and will take strict action according to the law,” said Harishchandra Reddy, DMHO, Mahbubnagar. It is also alleged that the RMP doctor has also attempted complex operation on a boy at Mudireddypally village earlier and became cause for his death. Later, he had shifted to Rajapur and opened Aravind clinic and was performing operations illegally and even prescribing medicines which he was not entitled to.
As per MCI guidelines, only a registered physician is eligible to prescribe medicines and conduct complex medical operations. The RMP doctors are entitled only to do first aid and extend some basic healthcare service to the patient during emergency in the absence of a doctor in the rural areas.
All complex cases and surgeries must be referred to either government hospitals or hospitals run by registered medical practitioners. However, the RMP doctor has been violating all the medical norms and resorting to direct treatment and earning big bucks by cashing the ignorance of the rural poor.
