New Delhi :  

A government hospital in Jaipur refused to admit a pregnant woman in labour. they gave the reason that she wasn't ready to give birth.

The woman begged for help but no relief. Alas she had to give birth to her baby on road. She delivered the baby outside the hospital at 11:00 pm.

The incident took place in the late evening on Friday in the Jaipuriya Hospital. The lady was brought to the hospital at 10 pm while she was experiencing severe labour pain.

According to the reports, the woman was refused admission in the hospital by the doctors who reasoned that ther was yet time for the baby to be born and asked her to come back in the morning.

The same was testified by Rekha Singh, Superintendent of the hospital, who was present at the time of the incident.

"The woman was in severe pain. The doctors, without even checking properly, asked her to come on the next day and forced her to leave. As she was leaving the premises, she gave birth on the road right outside the hospital, in the presence of several others. Later, the police was informed and an ambulance was arranged for her," he said.
