Torturers who mutilated a gynaecologist and left her for dead are believed to be relatives of a woman whose baby was delivered stillborn by the medic, say police in Mexico.

Dr Sabina Mota, 30, had two of her fingers cut off and was butchered by her attackers in an attempt to hack out her ovaries and her womb.

The shocking attack began when the medic was snatched as she left the hospital where she worked in the city of Zamora, in the Mexican state of Michoacan de Ocampo, after a night shift in the maternity ward.

Police spokesman Ulpio Fonseca said: “She was forced to take muscle relaxant drugs which made it impossible for her to fight back.

“Then she was tortured and mutilated in her own home for several hours by people we believe are related to a former patient.

“She had severe injuries and nearly bled to death.

Officers say she was forced to write on a wall a warning to her colleagues in her own blood before her attackers chained her up and fled.

She was rescued when she came round from the muscle relaxant drugs and screamed, which alerted neighbours.

Police believe the attack is linked to the death of a baby boy during birth complications three weeks earlier.

The medic had found a note at her home saying: “The doctor who murdered my son will be next.”

A colleague had told police: “The woman’s family had turned up at the hospital accusing her of killing the child. People often threaten doctors when things go wrong, but this family we now know clearly meant it.”

Police spokesman Ulpio Fonseca added: “The two are clearly linked and we are seeking the mother and members of her family who are currently missing.”
