A drunk doctor in India delivered a woman’s baby by Caesarean section allegedly leading to the death of the mother and baby. Kaminiben Chanchiya, 22, was admitted to the government-run Sonawala Hospital Gujarat on Monday night with labor pains, India Today reported.
Dr. PJ Lakhani, a doctor who has been working at the hospital for the past 15 years, performed an emergency C-section on the woman. The baby was declared dead soon after the operation and the woman died shortly after, prompting the victim’s family to accuse the doctor of negligence, reports said. Police said Lakhani was administered a test that confirmed he was drunk. An autopsy will be performed on Chanchiya to determine the cause of death.
