It is alleged two nurses in the medical team, Amritlal Singh and Juhjar Singh, hid the child's headless body in the medical centre's mortuary and advised one of the hospital's doctors that they had finished Ms Kanwar's delivery but there was a problem delivering the placenta.

A pregnant woman, named as Dikhsha Kanwar, was admitted to Ramgarh Community Health Centre in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district on January 6 after her contractions began, the Hindustan Times reports.

The incident took place at a hospital in Jaisalmer's Ramgarh.

A case has been opened against two male nurses but police are yet to arrest them. Also, the family didn't inform that the head of the baby was inside the womb.
