In a case of grave medical negligence, doctors from Achampet Hospital in Telangana's Nagarkurnool, left the decapitated body of a foetus inside the mother's womb and delivered the severed head. The decapitation mishap is said to have been taken place while delivery.  To make matters worse, the problem was not brought up until the mother was referred to the Petlaburj Maternity Hospital in Hyderabad. The medics there found the rest of the body of the child inside the mother's womb. The horrifying incident has infuriated the family and relatives of the woman. Massive protests have been taking place at the Telangana hospital and they even ransacked the Achampet Hospital on Friday, as per The News Minute.

The doctors ended up decapitating the baby's head while pulling out of the baby leaving the torso in the womb. Making matters worse, the doctors hid the fact and soon referred Swathi to Petlaburj. The other hospital was about 150 km far from Nagarkurnool.
