#India-NHRC questions sterlising women unhygenically #vaw #womenrights #reproductive rights


Kolkata, Feb 11 : Days after over 100 women were sterilised in a single day at a health camp under unhygienic conditions, the NHRC Monday issued a notice to the West Bengal government.

On the basis of a media report and a complaint, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) issued notice to the principal secretary, health, West Bengal, and to the district magistrate of Malda, returnable in six weeks.

The complainant said that over 100 women were sterilised by two doctors in a day without ensuring basic healthcare facilities.

“The sterilisation operations were performed at a camp at Manikchak village health centre, Malda district. After the surgeries, women were left in the open outside the health centre for recuperation. Some of them were sent to their homes in rickshaws without keeping them under observation for a mandatory period post surgery,” the NHRC said in a statement.

The complainant has demanded a high-level inquiry, action against the erring doctors and monetary relief to the victims.

Due to lack of space in the health centre, some women were dumped unconscious in a field after the mass sterilisation.

The state government has ordered a probe into the incident.
