After being denied admission by a government hospital in Muzaffarnagar, a 35-year-old woman was forced to give birth on a road on Monday.

The woman was a victim of the 2013 riots in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh and as a result, was displaced from her native village, in Phugana.

The incident has prompted a probe by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) into the case.

Her husband alleged that she was asked to leave the hospital as her delivery date was scheduled three days later. He added that his wife delivered the baby on their way back home.

The woman was then shifted to a hospital in Shamli district on the directive of CMO V Agnihotri.

The woman claimed that she was displaced from her native village in Phugana in the aftermath of the 2013 riots in Muzaffarnagar and was later rehabilitated at Kandhla town.
