Lucknow: In a shocking incident, a HIV-positive pregnant woman - traveled nearly 50km to Bareilly with her husband - was denied treatment and delivered a stillborn at Badaun district hospital in Uttar Pradesh.

Doctors said the infant could have been saved had the mother received immediate medical attention.

A probe has been ordered into the incident.

Her husband alleged that in Badaun the doctors refused to admit his wife because she has AIDS.

"They refused to help my wife and asked me to take her to some other hospital in Bareilly. I begged them to save my child but they misbehaved. With no other options, I rushed her to Bareilly at midnight and the operation was finally conducted. Unfortunately, the baby was dead," he alleged.

The incident took place after a 12-year-old boy died due to alleged medical negligence on August 30, 2016. His father ran from pillar to post in search of medical attention but he died at Kanpur Medical College.
