- A Northville doctor was charged on Thursday with performing female genital mutilation on minor girls out of a Livonia medical office.
According to the complaint filed in federal court, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala performed the procedure on girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old. The complaint states that some members of a religion across the world have the procedure done to reduce sexual pleasure and promiscuity.
The federal document claims that children from other states were brought to Dr. Nagarwala to undergo the operations. Two victims from Minnesota stayed at a hotel in Farmington Hills in February. One of the girls is 11 years old and told authorities that they came to the Detroit area for a 'special' girls trip, and when they arrived at the hotel she and the other young girl had to go to the doctor because 'their tummies hurt'.
While at the doctor's office, she said a procedure was done to 'get the germs out'. She identified Nagarwala as the woman who performed the operation. She also said that she was told not to talk about the procedure..... click headline to read more
