The Manikchak block hospital, where the sterilisation camp was organised, has 60 beds - 30 each for men and women. The rulebook allows no more than 25 sterilisations in a day.
The doctors not only flouted that rule, their medical negligence went further. After the sterilisation, many women were left to recuperate in the hospital's open compound while still under anaesthesia.
Medical experts are shocked how only two doctors carried out over a hundred operations.
The Malda district magistrate said the block medical officer had been issued a notice and a probe had been ordered.
