Aamir Khan’s latest TV show, “Satyamev Jayate” has shaken the whole nation from her sleep. The reality show has inspired so many people across the country. The latest we hear is that in a small village in Rajasthan, a sarpanch registered a police complain against women and families who go for tests to detect and abort the girl child.
“Illegal sex determination is rampant in the Shekhawati region (Jhunjhunu, Churu and Sikar districts),” sarpanch Randheer Singh of Budania village told.
The sarpanch also said that a committee of six-members have been formed to take a closer look at women who are expecting.
“After watching Aamir Khan’s TV show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ on female foeticide, I felt that awareness in Rajasthan is not enough,” he said.
“Checking female foeticide at the village level is necessary to save girl children.”
He also said that almost every pregnant woman in the village is known by auxiliary nurses and midwives.
“If a woman is found involved in illegal sex determination and abortion of a girl child, an FIR (First Information Report) will be filed against her with the police,” Singh said.
“If she is forced to abort by her in-laws, similar action will be taken against them also,” he said.
