Indian woman gives birth inside Dhaka Railway Police station

UNB

An Indian woman gave birth in dramatic circumstances inside the toilet of the Dhaka Railway Police station in Kamalapur on Monday night, reports UNB. Police quoting the Indian woman, identified as Ruksana Akhter, 30, said she had come to Bangladesh in the week preceding Eid with her husband Abdul, a Bangladeshi, who worked in a furniture shop in India. According to Ruksana's account relayed by police, on Monday morning, she and her husband took a train to Narayanganj to visit one of his sisters.

In the evening, Abdul put her on a Dhaka-bound train apparently to go home but he himself stayed back in Narayanganj, said Yasin Faruk, Officer-in-Charge of Dhaka Railway Police Station, quoting Ruksana.

By the time the train reached Gendaria, she was in tears and suffering a breakdown. When the train reached Kamalapur, she was taken to the Railways Police Station, OC Faruk said.

Around 11:00pm, Ruksana asked

to use the toilet. Soon afterwards,

the on-duty officers at the station heard the unmistakable cry of a new born baby ringing out across the station. Making their way to the toilet, they found that it was a boy, said the OC.

"We first sent Ruksana, who can only speak Hindi, to Mugda General Hospital and then shifted her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital," OC said.

The newborn is now undergoing treatment in ICU at the DMCH and for the time being at least, in the absence of one parent, the officers of the Railways Police Station are "looking after the kid's treatment," filling the role of his guardian.
