Medical Records Stored without password by State Medical Department
A database 12.5 million pregnancy records including information about the mother and illegal prenatal sex determination were found linked to the internet without being secured by a password. The state whose Department of Medical, Health and Family Welfare is responsible for the security breach has not been revealed which ironically is for security reasons. All the entities involved in the act are liable to be punished as the The Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act (PCPNDT), 1994 prohibits the revelation of the sex of the baby before birth.
