During the time of the delivery, the nurse pulled the foetus so carelessly that it resulted in splitting the body of the baby into two parts.

Trilok Singh, father of the baby, said, "I had taken my wife to the community health centre in Ramgarh on January 6 for delivery".

Barmer: In a terrible case of medical negligence, a woman's baby was split into half during delivery in government hospital of Ramgarh area, Rajasthan.

The mother is said to be battling for her life after the incident.

The horrifying incident occurred on Monday at Ramgarh primary health centre (PHC) in Jaisalmer. The doctors informed the woman's relatives and the family members.

Dr Sankhla said he realised there was something "horribly wrong" when he attempted to remove the placenta, who then referred her to the Ummed Hospital in Jodhpur'. Two male nurses have also been suspended.

In its biggest market, China , the vehicle industry recorded its first slump in sales in more than two decades. The decline is part of a picture which led to JLR's recent posting of a £354m half-year loss.

The boss of the Ramgarh community health centre claimed he wasn't around at the time of the incident.

The nurse asked the family of the woman to take her to Jodhpur for further treatment.

Later, a team of doctors headed by Dr Ravindra Sankhla operated the victim again and found that the foetus' head is in the womb.

On Wednesday, a case was filed under IPC sections 304 A (causing death by negligence) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety) against the two staffers of Ramgarh PHC. The family reached Ramgarh police station on Wednesday and lodged a case against the two nurses.

"When questioned, the hospital staffers handed over the lower part of the foetus to us", investigating officer Jalam Singh said in a statement.

However, no arrest has been made in the connection with the case as yet.
