They told me to go to the women's ward. When I went there, they said there was no bed available there."
She also alleged that she was made to wander for over three hours at the hospital before the girl died. Woman department chief Alka Sharma reiterated that there were no beds available when the victim visited them. "We have only four beds with having eight children on them," she said.
