NEW DELHI: A 29-year-old woman delivered a baby boy in a Delhi Police PCR van while she was being rushed to a hospital on Sunday.

The woman, Arti, was travelling in a train from Gwalior to Samalkha in Panipat when she felt labour pain. Her in-laws, who were accompanying her, got down at Sabji Mandi railway station and sought help.

A railway employee called the police control room and help arrived quickly. As the woman was being taken to hospital, she delivered a baby in the PCR van, said R K Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (PCR).

The woman and her newborn child have been admitted to the Bara Hindurao Hospital, said the officer.
