Have you ever heard of any doctor prescribing a pregnancy test to a man? A shocking incident has come to light in Jharkhand’s Chatra district, where a doctor in a government hospital asked two youth for a pregnancy test after they complained of stomach pain.
The shocking incident took place on October 1, when Gopal Ganjhu (22) and Kameshwar Ganjhu (26) visited the hospital due to stomach pain. Dr Mukesh Kumar prescribed them some of the tests that included HIV, HBA, HCV, CBC and ANC. It is to be noted that ANC is a test that is conducted to see if a woman is pregnant or not.
After Gopal and Kameshwar visited the pathological lab of the hospital, the attendant informed them that the ANC is done on women to check pregnancy. Following this, the two men complained against the doctor to Arun Kumar Paswan, the civil surgeon of Chatra district. Paswan told reporters that the investigation has been ordered into the matter.
Dr Mukesh Kumar, meanwhile, is in denial mode. He said, "This is not true. This is an effort to defame me. Those tests could have been added by overwriting."
