“When my wife felt labour pain, I took her to a hospital in Sirsiya via ambulance. However, they referred my wife to the district hospital. Later on, when we reach the district hospital in Bhinga, they also asked me to take her to a hospital in Bahraich. However, I didn’t have enough money. My wife had to deliver the baby on road,” Sunita’s husband Ramesh told ANI.
