When Rajaram's wife went into labor on Wednesday, he took him to a midwife. The midwife suggested taking her to a Primary Health Centre (PHC) in the Deeh area. The SHO of Baldiram revealed that Poonam, Rajaram's wife was examined at PHC. The auxiliary nurse suggested Rajaram take her to a hospital as her condition deteriorated.


After the C-section, Poonam started bleeding and couldn't stop. The quack asked Rajaram to take her to a district hospital. Since there wasn't any hospital nearby, Poonam was taken to Lucknow. She succumbed to her wounds in the KGMU trauma center.


The police have written to the CMO to take strict actions against illegal clinics and hospitals.
