Due to the alleged involvement in the sale of a 16-year-old egg girl’s cells, the state health authority of Tamil Nadu issued an order for the permanent closure of four hospitals.
The girl’s mother forced the girl to donate her eggs eight different times to various fertility clinics.
The state’s health minister, Ma Subramanian, highlighted several violations that a committee of investigators explained that one oocyte can only be donated by an adult who is a married woman between the ages of 21 and 35 and also who is currently pregnant.
But in this case, the girl was continuously pressured into doing this so many times. An immature ovum or egg cell used in reproduction is called an oocyte.
He added that to make the young girl appear to be an adult, a fake Aadhar card was used. The approval of a false husband was gained.
The Assisted Reproductive Technology Act was alleged to have been broken by the hospitals.
The investigation committee discovered that they lacked experienced counselors and failed to inform the donor girl of the benefits and drawbacks of the operation.
Additionally, the Aadhaar and POCSO acts have been put into motion.
According to the state health minister, these hospitals might be penalized up to Rs 50 lakh, and individuals responsible, including doctors, could face a ten-year prison sentence under the Assisted Reproductive Technology Act.
In the best interests of their patients, the hospitals had received a time span of two weeks to get closed.
The health administration stated that two of these hospitals would also lose their inclusion in the state health insurance program.
Meanwhile, The health secretary would also suggest taking legal action against two remaining hospitals among the six, one in Andhra Pradesh and one in Kerala, for their complicity in the scheme.
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
