New Delhi: The Police Control Room (PCR) van of the Delhi Police doubled up as a labour room recently when a woman delivered her baby in it en route to the hospital in north Delhi's Burari, police said on Monday.

On August 12, a PCR van stationed at Burari received a call about a woman in Satya Vihar, Burari. The staff comprising assistant sub-inspector Jitender and head constable Mahender rushed to the spot and found a 22-year-old woman in advanced labour pain.

The staff immediately shifted the woman to the PCR van and sped away for the hospital. On the way, they noticed that the 22-year-old was in acute pain and was close to delivering the baby, police said.
