The family says the ultrasound results clearly show she was carrying twins. The woman and her family staged a protest outside the hospital last week and have filed a police complaint. Hospital authorities have told CNN-News18 that the Chief Medical Officer is probing the matter.

The family of a 23-year-old woman in Noida has alleged that she delivered twins at a government hospital but they were given only one child. Sangeeta Devi, a resident of Sector 86, was admitted to a government hospital in Sector 30 on June 20 morning after she went into labour.

The family says the ultrasound results clearly show she was carrying twins. The woman and her family staged a protest outside the hospital last week and have filed a police complaint. Hospital authorities have told CNN-News18 that the Chief Medical Officer is probing the matter.

Sangeeta Devi alleged that the hospital took away one of her babies.


"They took my baby, they took one of my babies and gave it away and then they told me I only delivered one baby and I said no, I had two kids. They even hit me and told me to say one baby too. They didn't even show me my other child."



"The ultrasound showed that I was about to have twins. They even told me that I wouldn't have a normal delivery as I have twins and they even asked us to buy two sets of clothes. They even made us sign a form", she added.

Chief Medical Superintendent, Dr. Narendra Mathur said that the hospital authorities have ordered an inquiry in the matter.


"This is an old issue, what about it? We have ordered an inquiry and we have formed teams to probe into the matter. The family has alleged a missing child and we are checking it. Facts will be out in the enquiry", he said.
