PIO couple jailed for ‘questioning’ doctors in US


Washington: An Indian-origin couple had their six-month-old twins taken away from them two months ago. Since then, Prakash Settur and Mala Paneer Selvam are allowed to meet them just for an hour a week. The reason? They mistakenly asked the doctors why Himisha, their daughter needed a full body MRI. The health facility dubbed them uncoo­p­era­tive and summ­on­ed Child Protective Services who took the twins away. The parents have been jailed for sex abuse.
