Botched sterilization surgery kills eight women in India

  • Eight women died in central India’s Chhattisgarh state after they underwent sterilization surgery at a government-held health camp, media reports say.  

    Eighty-three women in Bilaspur district’s Pendari village underwent the tubectomy surgery on Saturday, November 8. At least 30 women are said to be in serious condition.

    Villagers alleged that a single doctor and his assistant performed all 83 surgeries in only six hours.

    The district health officer said a post-mortem would reveal the cause of deaths.
