Rourkela: Tension gripped at Rourkela Government Hospital today after the death of a pregnant woman and her unborn baby at the hospital.
The deceased woman has been identified as Bhama Kishan of Church Basti.
Reportedly, the pregnant woman was admitted to the hospital after she complained of labour pain last night around 11.30 pm. But moments after they were admitted, the woman and her unborn baby were declared dead by doctors.
As soon as the news spread, irate locals gathered at the hospital and created ruckus alleging negligence in treatment as the reason behind the deaths. They demanded suspension of the concerned doctor and a high-level probe into the matter.
Meanwhile, police have been deployed on the hospital premises in order to avoid any untoward incident.
