According to officials, Mohammed Imtiyaz was conducting sex determination test through a middleman identified as Hanuman Jyandi.

When the woman reached Jodhpur from Jhunjhunu, Hamuman asked her to come to the railway station around 9 pm.

Hanuman took the woman to suspended BCMHO Dr Mohammed Imtiyaz.

A PCPNDT team caught Imtiyaz conducting the sex determination test on the woman and arrested him. Hanuman managed to escape under the cover of darkness, officials said.
