Reports says that, a parliamentary panel has invited actor Aamir Khan, who exposed malpractices in the medical sector on his ‘Satyamev Jayate’ TV programme, for an interaction on the issue.

After his show broadcast episodes on female foeticide and medical wrongdoings, the Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC) temporarily suspended the registration of 13 doctors in the state who were charged of revealing the sex of foetus.

The council decided to suspend the doctors from various corners of Maharashtra including Beed, Jalagaon, Pune and Osmanabad by taking into consideration various provisions of the MMC Act and the Pre-Conception And Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act (PCPNDT).
