Meanwhile, the hospital authorities issued a clarification over the entire incident. The concerned authorities claimed the man did not bring her mother to the correct gate, reported India Today. The hospital authorities added that they did not notice the man pleading for help as that main gate of the centre was shut after the operational hours, which led to the delay in the treatment.
They said that after the operational hours, the back gate was used for attending pregnant women and emergency cases. Later, the patient was sent to a district hospital in an ambulance, and she died there, claimed the authorities.
