A woman and her newborn child bled to death in Uttar Pradesh after a class 8 dropout performed C-section surgery on her, say reports. 30-year-old Rajendra Shukla employed at an unregistered facility called Maa Sharda Hospital in Saini village performed the surgery with a shaving blade.
The woman’s husband filed a police complaint after the death of his wife and child. The police upon investigation found that the clinic had no infrastructure to perform surgeries and was run by midwives and quacks who used razor blades to conduct operations.
Both the owner of the facility Rajesh Sahni and Shukla have been arrested. The UP police has also written to the chief medical officer to take action against such illegal clinics.
