Delhi Cops Play Midwife As Woman Delivers Baby Boy In Police Van


Delhi policemen Sanjeev and Sanjay had a strange task at hand on Saturday when they got a call from the railway control room seeking help to rush a pregnant lady passenger to the hospital.

23- year-old Aarti was travelling with her in-laws from Gwalior to Samalkha in Haryana on the Dadri Express, when she went into labour. At around 5 a.m, her in-laws informed the ticket checker about the emergency, who in turn informed the railway control room.

The train made an unscheduled halt at Delhi’s Subzi Mandi station where a police van was waiting for Aarti.

With the help of head constable Sanjeev and constable Sanjay, Aarti delivered a baby boy in the van where the cops had arranged for hot water and towels for the just born.

"The situation could have gone out of hand as there was no medical aide in the train. But the PCR reached us just in time and the policemen helped us immensely," said Kashi Ram, Aarti's father-in-law to The Times Of India.
