DETROIT (WWJ) – A Detroit-area doctor has been arrested, facing federal charges for allegedly performing female genital mutilation on young girls.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 44-year-old Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, of Northville, Michigan, is charged with performing FGM on minor girls out of a medical office in Livonia.

According to the criminal complaint, some of the minor victims traveled interstate to have Nagarwala, an emergency room doctor, perform the procedure — which typically involves the surgical removal of a female’s clitoris, sometimes for religious or cultural reasons.

Authorities say the girls ranged from approximately 6 to 8 years old.
