infantsIn a gruesome incident that happened in Northern India, an infant child head was removed due to excessive force used by women doctors during delivery. This happened at Rampur district hospital in Uttar Pradesh and the police have arrested a doctor and nurse over these accusations.

As reported by a senior district health official, a first time mother of 35 years of age had come to this hospital for delivery. After discovering that the child was dead, the gynaecologist Tayyaba Iqbal and a nurse named as Madhuri used inappropriate equipment to retrieve the child from the womb, leading to its head being separated from the body. The mother was later taken to surgery to retrieve the severed head.

The police are still investigating the matter and have arrested the doctor and the nurse over charges of culpable homicide, not amounting to murder.
