The Lucknow Newsline in India reports that mobile ultrasound companies in India are providing sex-determination scans to decide whether to keep the baby or perform feticide if it's a girl. The practice, called "female foeticide" or "feticide", is defined as an act that causes death to a fetus. The article states that the mobile companies are difficult to catch because they have no schedule nor fixed location or doctor. In addition, occasionally the person performing the scans is untrained.

Ultrasound on wheels the new killer Express News Service
Lucknow, July 4: Mobile vans carrying ultrasound machines have become the new threat for the girl child. Hard to trace and monitor, these vans are a real hurdle for the implementation of the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act in the state.
A study by an NGO fighting against female foeticide revealed that these mobile ultrasound machines are a rage in districts like Baghpat, where the sex ratio is the lowest. And since these vans have no fixed schedule and no doctor, they are all the more difficult to catch.
