Srinagar, April 13 : A woman delivered her baby in a cab after a hospital allegedly rejected her husband’s plea for an ambulance in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.

Mohammad Shafi Kohli of Sarkoli Kalaroos told reporters that doctors at a local hospital had referred his pregnant wife to Kupwara District Hospital but refused to allot them an ambulance.

“They asked me to take my wife there in a Sumo cab,” he said, adding his wife delivered the baby on way to the healthcare facility. “The baby child, however, later died,” he said and demanded action against the doctors.

Deputy Commissioner Kupwara, Anshul Garg told GNS that he has directed CMO to inquire into the incident and submit a report to him. (GNS)
