A Pregnant woman has given birth to her child as stillbirth after her neighbours kicked her stomach during a disagreement.
On Sunday, the woman’s husband, along with his relatives and friends, staged a demonstration at the Patel Nagar interjection as they sat there with the stillborn and blocked vehicular movement. The woman’s family members have alleged that no action was taken against the accused even after they filed a written complaint with the police.
Sanjay Verma, the woman’s husband, is a resident of Ghukna Village and a private firm employee. In 2019, he had borrowed Rs 1.2 lakh from the accused and had given his wife’s gold jewellery as mortgage. “On September 7, around seven people barged into my house and asked for the money. I requested them to give me some time because my salary had been deducted by my company because of the current situation,” a report by The Times of Indiaquoted Verma as saying.
The accused allegedly refused to listen to Verma and began thrashing him. They kicked his pregnant wife in the abdomen, following which she rushed to a hospital as she experienced a lot of pain. On Sunday, she gave birth to a stillborn, Verma said, adding that the child died due to the assault on his wife.
Verma said they went to the police station after the incident and filed a complaint, but no action was taken. Police just issued a challan to the accused. Meanwhile, Superintendent of Police (city) Abhishek Verma said the process of registering an FIR into the matter is underway as the autopsy of the stillborn baby is awaited
