The Kandivali police have arrested a man, who was on the run for 18 months after allegedly administering abortion pills to his pregnant wife in Diva. As per his 34-year-old wife, he was driven by the desire to have a son and gave her abortion pills after she refused a gender test. The couple already have a daughter, who is now eight years old.

The couple got married a decade ago in Ahmedabad and later moved to Diva, where they resided for seven years. However, disagreements arose in the family and the man moved back to Gujarat with their daughter. He intermittently returned to Diva to meet his wife. In March 2022, the woman became pregnant again and the man expressed his desire to have a son.
