They said since last 13 days no body from their family was allowed to enter the ward where the baby was kept, however, on Tuesday evening they informed that baby has died.

“We took body of the baby home without looking it whether the baby is male or female when even on death certificate and other documents male baby has been clearly written and on Wednesday when we asked a local Molvi to give baby last bath, he informed us that baby is female not male,” they said.

“We buried the baby and went to the hospital again to enquire about the issue. The officials at the hospital misbehaved with us and even snatched out documents,” they alleged.
