CHARSADDA, 9 November: An infant died after birth in a bathroom in the District Headquarters Hospital Charsadda on Wednesday.

Hamdullah, the child’s father, said he had brought his wife to the hospital for check up and the hospital administration admitted her. Hamdullah alleged that a nurse showed anger over his wife when she vomited in the ward. He said his wife went to the bath room when she felt she would vomit again. He said his wife gave birth to the child in the bathroom where the child died. He demanded action against the lady doctor and other staff responsible for the incident.

“The hospital administration forcibly recorded statement of my wife that the child was born in the bed. Other women in the ward are witness to the fact that the child was born in the bathroom. The provincial government is making tall claims about the change which is not visible,” Hamdullah told TNN.

The hospital superintendent has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
