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

Gynecologist Dr. Ravindra Sankhla said that the staff of the health center informed him that the baby's placenta was still inside the mother's womb.

After the incident, they asked family members to take the woman to Jaisalmer claiming that the opening of the womb had closed and it was hard to take the umbilical cord out.

During the time of the delivery, the nurse pulled the foetus so carelessly that it resulted in splitting the body of the baby into two parts. Despite being a high-risk case, the two nurses on duty-Amritram and Jhunjhar Ram-tried to deliver the chid of seven-month pregnant Deeksha without the presence of a doctor.

After travelling for four hours, the family reached the Umaid hospital in Jodhpur where the doctors induced labour to start the birth.

An Indian nurse allegedly tore the head off an unborn foetus while in the delivery room.

He said the accused male nurses deposited the lower part of the foetus at the hospital mortuary and asked the family members of the woman to take her to Jodhpur.

Her husband has lodged a complaint and alleged the two nurses were drunk. Also, the family didn't inform that the head of the baby was inside the womb.

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

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

Sub-inspector Jalam Singh said the police recovered a part of the baby's body from the government hospital after conducting searches. Tilok Bhati, the father, claimed that the Ramgarh hospital staff were inebriated and misbehaved with them.

"No arrest has been made so far", he added.
