Bollywood superstar cleared of gender Selection in surrogate baby.

Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan received a clean chit from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation  on a case of alleged  gender testing that is  banned in India. The BMC told the Bombay High Court on September 12 that an inquiry has found baseless the allegations leveled against SRK and his wife Gauri of conducting pre-birth sex determination tests of their surrogate son AbRam. Justice Sadhana Jadhav was hearing a petition filed by social activist Varsha Deshpande for early hearing of the complaint filed by her in a magistrate court seeking action against the couple and others under the Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act.
The Mumbai Court also noted that the only basis for the petitioner's complaint was newspaper reports. The complainant alleged that the civic officials had failed to take action against the couple and hence she moved the magistrate's court with a fresh complaint. Earlier, Shah Rukh had rubbished allegations over the pre-natal gender tests on his third child. The couple already has two children -- Aryan and Suhana.
