Meanwhile, Kanwar is said to be fighting for her life in the hospital.

On January 6, pregnant Dikhsha Kanwar was admitted to the government-run Ramgarh Community Health Centre, in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district, when she began having contractions.

The male nurse and his colleague took the baby's torso to the hospital mortuary and told the family to take the mother to another hospital.

ANI quoted Dr Sankhla from Jaisalmer's Jawahar Hospital as saying that: "The reports from the Ramgarh health centre stated that delivery had been done". The police, acting on the woman's complaint, questioned the male nurse about the botched-up procedure.

Two male nurses are the subject of controversy in India involving a baby who got decapitated while being born, as his head was left inside the mother's womb.

Doctors reportedly then found the head of the dead baby inside the woman's womb during surgery and informed her relatives.

The man in charge of the heath centre in Ramgargh, Dr Nikhil Sharma, said he wasn't present at the time of the incident.

She was then transferred to Ummed Hospital in nearby Jodhpur, where doctors thinking they were recovering the placenta, were shocked to discover the foetus' dismembered head. Chief medical health officer, Jaisalmer, Dr B L Bunkar said, "I visited Ramgarh and investigated the matter".

A case was filed under IPC sections 304 A (causing death by negligence) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety) against two staffers of the Ramgarh hospital. The family reached Ramgarh police station on Wednesday and lodged a case against the two nurses.

However, no arrest has been made in the connection with the case as yet.
