A 25-year-old woman on Thursday gave birth to a baby boy on a running train but due to unavailability of medical facility on board and at western UP's Tundla railway station, the baby died after few hours.
A pregnant Manju boarded a general compartment on Katihar-Amritsar Express with her husband Lallan Singh from her native place Gonda on Wednesday morning to go to Panipat in Haryana.
When train was about to reach Tundla railway station around 12.30 am on Thursday, her labour pain started.
narrating the incident, a Delhi-based eyewitness told MAIL TODAY that he dialled the helpline number and informed the railway control room.
"The control room reacted late and by then the train left Tundla. I have also informed the TTE and the guard. The bogie of guard is adjacent to the general compartment, but he had not taken any proactive measure, and allowed the train to run toward Aligarh," said Brij Bhushan Singh, who was travelling in the same compartment till Delhi.
He also said if Manju could get immediate medical attention at Tundla station, there was a big chance of the baby's survival. The travel time of two hours from Tundla to Aligarh proved fatal for the newborn.
When the train reached Aligarh station, a medical team rushed to help the woman but by then, the newborn lost his life due to suspected infection and lack of necessary medical assistance.
The medical team also offered to treat Manju but she refused despite being critical after excessive bleeding.
Sources said the general compartment is isolated from other bogies of the train. Hence, none of the officials on board came for her help.
A GRP official in Aligarh said the railway board has constituted a probe committee to ascertain the negligence of the officials.
