Rajasthan: Baby split in half, head left in womb during delivery

11 January 2019

During the delivery a male nurse pulled at the foetus so hard that it broke into two parts, it was reported.

After the botched delivery, the accused male nurse and his colleague took the torso of the baby to the mortuary of the hospital and asked the family of the victim to take her to Jaisalmer for further treatment.

While delivering the child, one of the nurses was said to have "pulled so hard" that the baby was split into two parts last January 6 in a community health center in Ramgarh, reports The Hindustan Times.

They then informed his family to take the woman, Dikhsha Kanwar, to another hospital in the city of Jaisalmer, without informing them of what happened.

However, no arrest has been made in the connection with the case as yet.

The police have filed a case under Indian Penal Code Sections 304A (causing death by negligence) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety). The duo reportedly pulled the baby with such force that the head tore and got stuck inside the womb, police said.

The woman, 24-year-old Deeksha Kanwar, had to be rushed to Jodhpur, where the doctors operated upon her and removed the baby's head.

They later lied to the gynaecologist at Jodhpur Umaid Hospital that they had finished the delivery. Tilok Bhati, the father, claimed that the Ramgarh hospital staff were inebriated and misbehaved with them.

The staff did not inform the family about her situation and referred her first to Jaisalmer.

"When questioned, the hospital staffers handed over the lower part of the foetus to us", investigating officer Jalam Singh said in a statement.

Following the incident, two male nurses- Amrit Lal and Junjhar Singh- were suspended and Nikhil Sharma, in-charge, Ramgarh community healthcare centre, was put on awaited posting order.
