MUZAFFARNAGAR: It seems there is no end to apathy. A woman was forced to deliver baby in an ambulance while she was been taken to another medical centre after a government hospital allegedly demanded bribe to admit her at Jansath town in Muzaffarnagar.
The incident took place on Tuesday when a man, identified as Amir brought his pregnant wife to a Community Health Centre (CHC) but the hospital staff demanded bribe to admit the lady, said police, adding that the woman then delivered the baby in an ambulance.
Following the incident, the victim’s family staged a dharna outside the hospital and demanded strict action against the hospital officials.
Meanwhile, Superintendent of the CHC Sharanvir Singh has ordered an enquiry into the matter and promised that strict action would be taken to those who are responsible for the act.
