Medicines contained substance that is used for rat poison At least 14 women died in India after mass sterilization. As the dpa news agency reports, this was probably due to poisoned medication. The Chhattisgarh authorities said the drugs the women were given after the procedure were likely to contain zinc phosphide. The zinc-phosphorus compound (Zn3P2) is normally used to produce rat and mouse poison.

Alok Shukla of the state health agency said, "The symptoms that the women showed are those that usually occur after consuming zinc phosphide, which is commonly used in rodenticides." According to the information, a doctor who has already been arrested had on November 8, 83 women in a hospital in Bilaspur severed the fallopian tubes. In the days that followed, almost all of them complained of pain, nausea and fever.

Sterilization is the most common method of contraception in India. In addition to the doctor, the owner of the drug factory Mahawar Pharma and his son were also arrested. It is reported that "the drugs, an antibiotic and a pain reliever have been sent to government laboratories for chemical analysis." According to the Press Trust of India news agency, "all of the company's products have been withdrawn from the market. As in many other parts of the subcontinent, Chhattisgarh has numerous sterilization camps each year." It is by far the most common method of contraception in India.
