Shravasti: A woman was forced to deliver her baby on the roadside in the Bhinga area of Uttar Pradesh's Shravasti district on Tuesday, after she was apparently referred multiple times from one hospital to another.

"When my wife Sunita began to experience labour pain, I took her to a hospital in Sirsiya via ambulance. However, they referred my wife to the district hospital. Later on, when we reached the district hospital in Bhinga, they asked me to take her to a hospital in Bahraich. However, I didn't have enough money. My wife had to deliver the baby on road," Sunita's husband Ramesh told ANI.

 

The District Magistrate of Shravasti district, Deepak Meena, said he has ordered an inquiry in the case.

"We have got to know that a woman gave birth to a child on roadside. We have asked for an inquiry in this case. If anyone will be found guilty, then that person will be punished," Meena said.
