Childbirth On Road Drew Public Attention In West Bengal

The plight of a poor woman in West Bengal, who gave birth to a baby in a public street after a government hospital doctor released her, raised public outcry and a call for probes here Tuesday. //

Bengali news channel Star Ananda Tuesday beamed images of Basanti Mal of Nijhuri village in Birbhum district, about 180 km from here, lying on a road with her newborn baby after she was forced to leave a hospital in Siuri town.

The district magistrate of Birbhum has ordered a probe into the incident.

Basanti, wife of a daily wage labourer, was admitted Sunday evening in the hospital and was in pain but allegedly not attended upon by either doctor or nurse.

The doctor, Debasish Debangshi, asked the heavily pregnant woman to get a scan report from his private clinic. After Basanti left the hospital for the private clinic Monday morning, she underwent labour pains and delivered on the road at 8.30 a.m.

Luckily, another doctor of the same hospital, Subrata Sarkar, who was passing by came forward to assist the woman.

West Bengal's health department has sought a report of the incident. The state human rights commission was also informed.

According to reports, both the mother - who has been readmitted to the Siuri hospital - and the child are keeping well.
