Agra: A stray dog allegedly mauled a newborn baby to death on January 13 at a hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Farrukhabad. According to reports, the dog allegedly dragged the newborn inside the operation theatre of a private hospital.
The father of the baby has been identified as Ravi Kumar. The incident took place around 8.30 am on January 13. The child was delivered at the Akash Ganga Hospital.
On January 13, Ravi Kumar brought his wife Kanchan to the hospital after she experienced labour pain. The hospital authorities told Kumar that his wife would have to go for a cesarean procedure.
Later, Kanchan was then taken to the operation theatre for the delivery and she gave birth to a baby boy. Soon, one of the staff came out of the OT and shouted that a dog had entered the room where the baby boy was. Kumar panicked when he heard the staff and ran to the OT and found his newborn baby lying in a pool of blood.
According to reports, the baby had bite marks on his chest and left eye. Kumar said that when he confronted the staff about the incident, they allegedly requested him to stay quiet and even offered to pay money.
The staff allegedly told Kumar that his baby was stillborn and claimed that the canine had entered the operation theatre by mistake.
