POLICE say they are still waiting for a doctor's reports in the case of a 35-year-old woman who was admitted at CWM Hospital after an alleged procedure for the termination of her pregnancy.

The Health Ministry has declined to comment on the issue while police investigations are continuing.

The woman had to be admitted at CWM Hospital after developing complications from the alleged procedure at the doctor's medical centre on Tuesday.

"The matter was reported by medical authorities after the victim underwent surgery," said police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro.

"Initial reports state the victim was referred to the said doctor following a scan conducted by another doctor, which had stated the victim had allegedly lost her baby."

Ms Naisoro said details regarding the outcome of the scan results were still being looked into at this stage.

"The victim and her husband had paid the doctor to conduct the surgery. When she returned the next day, she was informed that she had developed some complications and had to be referred to the CWMH," Ms Naisoro said.

She said the victim was still admitted and in a satisfactory condition.
