The members of POW demanded that the police should book cases against the hospital under relevant sections for illegally performing commercial surrogacy and under SC ST prevention of Atrocities Act.
And neither did the Department of Woman and Child Welfare have taken any action, despite the Chairman of National SC ST Commission Mr. Ramulu demanding compensation for the victim and action against the hospital,” she said.
