Noida, Nov 18 (IANS) The sister of a physician at the Noida Medicare Centre (NMC) who has been evading summons Tuesday accused the police of high-handedness, which she said led to her miscarriage.Priyanka Awana, the 25-year-old sister of Rapal Awana, has alleged that the policemen manhandled her at her brother’s Sector-31 house, where they had come to serve a legal notice on him.

“When I asked why they had come, they did not give me a satisfactory answer and trespassed into my house. When I resisted, they pushed me aside and I fell down. I had a two-month foetus in my womb, which has been terminated due to the impact. I suffered immense pain in my abdomen after the act,” Priyanka told reporters.

When she was taken to the District Hospital in the evening, an ultrasound test could not be carried out on her due to inadequate facilities at night.

“We have to verify whether the pain is due to the miscarriage or due to any other reason,” said a doctor at the Noida District Hospital.

Priyanka was then taken to a private hospital, where an ultrasound was yet to be performed to check the status of her condition.

The police denied having received any complaint in this regard.

Earlier, a case was registered against Rajpal Awana and NMC chairman Naveen Chaudhary on Nov 2 for allegedly thrashing a patient’s attendants who complained to the hospital management about poor facilities and medical negligence.

Two NMC security guards have been arrested but Awana has been absconding since the incident.
