Showing a lack of sensitivity, a Gurugram hospital allegedly denied admission to a pregnant lady for not carrying Aadhaar card forcing her to deliver a baby outside the emergency ward.

Munni and Bablu reached the hospital at 9.30am after Munni started having labour pain.

Victim's husband Babloo, who works as a Labourer told The Indian Express, "We only had the Aadhaar card number at the time, and said we would get the card as well..." Since Munni had not got any tests done related to her pregnancy, she was sent by a staff nurse to get an ultrasound test where she was asked for an Aadhaar card, said Janaki, sister-in-law of Munni.

However, the hospital denied admission and demanded a hard copy of the Aadhar card, the family claimed. "I asked my relatives to stay with my wife and went to get a printout of the card", Arun added.

He then chose to go get a printout, meanshile asking the female relatives to get Munni help.

Although Munni was admitted to the hospital after she gave birth, with family members saying both mother and child were healthy and recovering, a probe has been initiated into the case and two hospital staff have been suspended. After waiting for nearly two hours without any medical care, the woman, identified as Munni, delivered the baby on the floor of the gate of the emergency ward, PTI quoted a relative as saying.

The hospital authorities said they had conducted an investigation into the matter. The staff reportedly came to help only after she delivered the baby and lost a lot of blood, which was all over the hospital floor. "A doctor and a nurse have been suspended for this", said Dr Pradeep Sharma, Principal Medical Officer (PMO).

The hospital has also been slammed on social media, with many users questioning the need for Aadhaar card for admission to a hospital ward.
