2nd Doctor, Wife Arrested in Genital Mutilation Case

posted on April 24, 2017

The Detroit News’s Robert Snell reports, “Federal agents arrested a second doctor and his wife Friday in a widening conspiracy involving female genital mutilation and members of a Muslim sect.” Dr. Fakhruddin Attar is accused of allowing Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who allegedly mutilated two 7-year-old girls earlier this year, to perform genital mutilations at Attar’s medical clinic. Snell writes, “The arrests are the latest development in the nation’s first female genital mutilation case, which is providing insight into a small, insular Muslim community in Metro Detroit and an illegal procedure performed on young girls.”
