Balasore: Tension prevailed at Baliapal community health centre (CHC) in Balasore district today after a woman delivered a stillborn baby at the hospital allegedly due to medical negligence.
Sources said one Sania Hembram of Narayanpur village was admitted to the hospital last night. The family members alleged that an untrained nurse was engaged for delivery since on-duty doctor Bhagirathi Murmu was absent at the hospital. As a result, the baby died before birth due to poor treatment.
It is also alleged that the hospital staff took away the body without the knowledge of the family members after they created a ruckus at the hospital protesting the incident.
Sources said the family members later turned up at police station seeking justice.
