Bhopal, Feb 1 (IANS) A woman gave birth at the Vidisha railway station in Madhya Pradesh with the help of railway personnel as her husband was allegedly told by the district hospital to take her to the state capital.

Narmadi Bai of Hasapur village was admitted in Vidisha district hospital Friday.

Said her husband Randhir: “I was told by the doctors to arrange blood as Narmadi would need it during delivery. I arranged the blood but then I was told to take her to Bhopal on Tuesday morning.”

They reached the Vidisha railway station where she complained of labour pains.

Government Railway Police (GRP) head constable Nirmal Singh told IANS: “With the help of a woman, Radha Bai, Narmadi delivered. Our men held clothes from all sides to cover her. She gave birth to a boy.”

The GRP personnel sent Narmadi and the baby to Vidisha district hospital.

However, Vidisha civil surgeon Manju Jain refused that the woman was forcibly referred to another hospital. She blamed Randhir for taking her to Bhopal.

“Narmadi had a chance to undergo caesarean, so her husband was told to arrange blood but to escape from operation expenditure he took her to Bhopal,” she said.
