Demonetisation woes: Aligarh resident claims got sterilized for money

ANI  |  Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) [India] 

In a shocking incident, a resident of Aligarh has allegedly got himself sterilized so that his family could come out of its crunch post of high-value currency notes.

Puran Sharma, a daily wager, couldn't afford a daily meal for his family after the drive and got sterilized at a nearby camp in return for monetary compensation.

"I was very tired because of this demonetisation, wasn't getting money. From somewhere, I heard that monetary compensation is being given for getting sterilized. So, I went there and got it done," said Puran Singh.

Aligarh's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rupendra Goyal, however, narrated a different story altogether.

Dr. Goyal said Puran came to the sterilisation camp organised in Khair with his wife. As his wife couldn't be sterilised due to her poor health, the doctors on duty persuaded him to undergo the operation as part of the government's family planning programme.

"He came with his wife and was willing to sterilize his wife. But as she is deaf and dumb, we refused to do so," said a doctor.

Puran's father claims that many people in the village undergo sterilization to collect money for their meals.
