Indian doctor charged with genital mutilation on girls in US
A 44-year-old Indian-origin woman doctor has been arrested and charged with performing genital mutilation on girls aged six to eight, believed to be the first such in the US.
Jumana Nagarwala has been charged with performing FGM on minor girls out of a medical office in Livonia, Michigan.
According to Nagarwala's profile in the Henry Ford Health System website, she speaks English and Gujarati.
According to the complaint, some of the minor victims allegedly traveled inter-state to have Nagarwala perform the procedure.
The complaint alleges that Nagarwala performed FGM on girls who were approximately six to eight years old. This is believed to be the first case brought under a US law, which criminalises FGM.
