“horrifying acts of brutality”
That’s how the federal government is describing a doctor’s mutliation of two young Minnesota girls genitals.
According to kctv5, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was arrested after the 7-year-olds identified her as the person who performed procedures on them in February at a clinic in suburban Detroit, according to the FBI.
Prosecutors are moving to have her locked up without bond, considering the brutality of the circumstances. Defense attorney Shannon Smith has declined to make any comments on behalf of the accused.
“Despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” said Kenneth Blanco, acting U.S. assistant attorney general.
Female genital mutilation is illegal in the United States on minors unless legitimate medical concerns warrant it.
