A doctor has been accused of spiking his girlfriend’s drink with an abortion pill to kill their unborn baby.

Sikander Imran had moved from Rochester, New York, to Arlington, Virginia, for a new job when he discovered his on-off partner of three years, Brook Fiske, was pregnant.

However, Ms Fiske says the 32-year-old doctor told her he did not want the child and tried to discuss the situation when she travelled to his new home.

She claims after she refused to agree to terminate the pregnancy, he slipped the abortion pill Misoprostol into her cup of tea.

“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,” Ms Fiske told local Rochester TV station WROC.

“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.”

Ms Fiske, who was 17 weeks pregnant, says she started having contractions a matter of hours after drinking the tea.

She went into labour and was taken to Virginia Hospital Center, but lost her child.

Ms Fiske added: “[Imran] immediately started crying and said that he was a horrible person and that he had done what I thought he did.

“According to the nurse at the hospital, it’s 200 milligrams to induce labour. So he gave me 800.”

WROC reported Sikander was charged with "cause of abortion and premeditated killing of a foetus of another".

His trial is scheduled to begin on March 12.
