Indian sterilisation patient: ‘I was slapped and told to calm down’

A woman who became seriously ill at the Indian sterilisation camps that have killed 15 women has spoken of being slapped by a doctor and told to “calm down” after screaming in pain at the procedure.

Shiv Kumari Yadav, 27, attended one of the clinics in Chhattisgarh, eastern India, at which antibiotics were handed out that authorites have said might have contained rat poison. She said she had stomach cramps and vomited after taking antibiotic pills following the operation.

On Friday, police arrested the head of a local drug manufacturing company, Mahawar Pharmaceuticals, which produced the pills.
