According to Rajesh S, the deputy commissioner of police (central Noida), the ‘doctor’ – one Priyaranjan Thakur – has been detained and a FIR has been filed against him.
The DCP said the woman visited the IVF Creation World Centre in the Eco Village 2 housing society in Greater Noida’s Bisrakh region on August 19.
She was a regular visitor and was undergoing In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) ‘treatments’. However, she fell ill and because the facility lacked emergency care, her condition worsened and she slipped into a coma, after which she had to be transferred to another hospital.
