Doctor accused of spiking pregnant girlfriend's drink with abortion pill
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WSET) - A New York doctor accused of spiking his former girlfriend's drink with an abortion pill.
Brooke Fiske told WROC in Rochester she and Sikander Imran had been dating on and off for about three years when she learned she was pregnant.
According to WROC, Imran had just moved from New York to Arlington, Virginia for a new job.
"He didn't want to have a baby so he tried to talk me into having an abortion which I didn't want to do," she told WROC.
Fiske says she was 17 weeks pregnant when she went to visit Imran and plan how they would raise the child.
That's when she says he poisoned her.
"When I was drinking my tea in the evening I got to the bottom of the cup, there was a gritty substance in there and when I looked at it, I could tell that it was a pill that had been ground up," she said.
Fiske says just a few hours later, she started having contractions.
She was rushed to the Virginia Hospital Center where she lost the baby boy.
According to Fiske, the "abortion pill" misoprostol was found in her system.
"According to the nurse at the hospital it's 200 milligrams to induce labor. So he gave me 800," she told WROC.
Imran was arrested.
He's facing several charges, including cause of abortion and premeditated killing of a fetus of another.
Imran's trial is scheduled for March 12.
