A mother’s fight to save her daughters

A mother’s fight to save her daughters

It’s the battle of a mother to save her twin daughters from her husband and his family; a family that never wanted the girls to be born in the first place.

Meetu Khurana is desperate and worries that she may just lose the battle to save her daughters.

“I am a mother of two daughters who I have been trying to save since pregnancy,” says Meetu.

Meetu got married to Doctor Kamal Khurana five years back. The trouble she alleges started when she got pregnant with twin girls.

“After sex determination my in-laws started forcing me to abort,” she says.

But Meetu refused to give in and managed to give birth and raise her daughters at her parents house. In 2008, she filed a case under the Pre-conception and Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques Act.

Under the act, a doctor has to take the consent of the mother before conducting an ultrasound which could be used for sex determination.

But Meetu says in her case, that form was not filled.

Meetu’s husband has now lodged a case against her to get custody to their daughters.

NDTV tried to contact Kamal Khurana, who refused to take calls. The hospital where the sex determination test was conducted also said no.

“Am scared if my daughters go there, they won’t survive,” she says.

    Dear Meetu,

    Just saw you on Satyamev Jayte and googled you to get in touch. We were classmates at SFS. I need to tell you that I am VERY proud of you! Wishing you and your lovely daughters good health and lots of strength to get through this phase. Though I am currently thousand of miles away, my best wishes and support are with you. If I can be of any help, please please please do let me know.

    Joy and smiles wished around you, your daughters and your parents,

    With lots of love,
    Ritu
