The three youths lured women of Bihar village into taking part in a ‘family planning' camp

In an appalling and bizarre incident, three quacks from Bihar's Araria district carried out no less than 61 tubectomy surgeries within two hours without any decent medical arrangement. They were nabbed by the police.

On Saturday evening, the three youths, claiming to be associated with an NGO, lured women from the poverty-stricken village of Kaparfora into taking part in a “family planning” camp while promising them Rs. 600 and free medicines.

The youths got down to business by performing the surgeries at breakneck speed without the benefit of anaesthesia, making the women cry out in agony. According to some villagers, even the saline bottles used by them were remnants from past operations.
