Noida: A pregnant woman, whose family failed
to give Rs 12,000 in lieu of five units of blood, was turned
away by a Uttar Pradesh government hospital here, after which
she delivered the baby in a car which was taking her to
another hospital.

Sangita Devi was refused admission when she had come to
the district hospital along with mother-in-law Kiran Devi as
the hospital doctors had allegedly asked for five unit blood
or Rs.12000.

As her family had no money, they went back and on the
way she developed labour pain.

A man took them in a car to another hospital but she
delivered the baby on the way.

District Magistrate Deepak Aggarwal ordered an inquiry
into the hospital`s refusal to admit the woman.
