A former Medstar Georgetown University Hospital doctor is facing charges after police say he spiked his pregnant girlfriend’s drink with an abortion pill, causing her to miscarry.
In an interview she recently gave to WROC, Brooke Fiske said she and Sikander Imran were dating on and off for three years. In the Spring, Imran moved from New York to Arlington, Va. for a new job. Shortly after, he learned Fiske was pregnant. According to her, he wanted nothing to do with the pregnancy.
“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,” Fiske said.
According to Fiske, she came to Virginia when she was 17 weeks pregnant to discuss how she and Imran would raise their child. It was during that visit police say he poisoned her. A few hours after drinking some tea, Fiske started having contractions.
“When I was drinking my tea in the evening, I got to the bottom of the cup, there was a gritty substance in there,” Fiske said. “And when I looked at it, I could tell that it was a pill that had been ground up.”
Fiske was taken to Virginia Hospital Center, where she went into labor and lost her baby boy. She told WROC tests showed the abortion pill Misoprostol was found in her system.
Arlington court records show that Imran is charged with causing an abortion, and premeditated killing of a fetus of another.
Court records also show his trial was scheduled to begin this week, but was delayed. His trial is now scheduled to begin in March. Imran is still being held at the Arlington County Detention Center.
