2 contradictory reports correct: MYH suptd

 INDORE: In another twist to a ragging controversy over the woman jail inmate, who was found pregnant in one report and not in the second one, MY Hospital superintendent said both reports were correct. Talking to media here on Monday, MYH Superintendent Dr P S Thakur said, "Both reports, including the first report in which the woman inmate was found pregnant and the second report wherein the doctors found she was not pregnant-- were correct."

After the first report, the MYH superintendent set up a board of five doctors on October 22, which declared that the woman is not pregnant. However, Dr Thakur did not divulge other details saying, "I have received facts and will give my reply to the court." Pleading anonymity, an expert in the field, said Dr Thakur's statement clearly indicated that the pregnancy was terminated on the MYH premises.

Whether it was forced or due to natural reason, it is to be found out, he added. Jhabua collector Jaishree Kiyawat, who has been assigned the responsibility of conducting a probe into the issue by the DG jail said, "I have received the opinion of the divisional medical board and have forwarded the same to the probe panel which is investigating the matter.

The panel has been given three weeks' time." On the order of the district court, a jail inmate from Jhabua, who was serving term for the past 10 months, was brought to MYH's mental hospital on September 10. During the medical check-up at the mental hospital on October 16, doctors found the woman has five-week pregnancy. After hue and cry, MYH superintendent set up a board of five doctors which was supposed to examine the matter. The board concluded that she is not pregnant.

A third divisional bench, constituted in the wake of contradictory reports, was believed to have reported that the woman was not pregnant.
