Update: 12:12PM POLICE say they are still waiting for doctors to report back to them on a case involving a woman who was admitted at CWM Hospital following an alleged procedure to terminate her pregnancy.

"Investigations continue as they await the doctors' report regarding the victim's medical status that could assist in the investigation," police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said.

 

"At this stage investigators are trying to piece together the circumstances that led to the alleged procedure taking place in the first place before the case can be classified."

The matter was reported by medical authorities after the victim underwent surgery.

She had suffered some complications following the alleged procedure at the doctors medical centre last month and was taken to the CWM Hospital by the same doctor the next day.
