New Delhi: A Delhi Police Control Room (PCR) van came to the aid of a 22-year-old woman who was in acute labour pain.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, PCR, Monika Bhardwaj said they received a call around 4.15 am about a woman being injured and crying in pain near a ticket counter at the Old Delhi railway station.

But when the PCR van reached the spot, policemen found the woman, Preeti, was crying in labour pain and her husband, who works as a street vendor in areas near the railway station, was helpless.

The DCP said the police decided to take her to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital. However, en route to the hospital, they had to stop the van on the Netaji Subhas Marg as she complained of unbearable pain, she said.

She delivered a baby girl in the PCR van with the help of her husband and the policemen. The woman and the baby were later shifted to the hospital for further treatment where both are safe, police said.
