The tragic death of a destitute woman, who gave birth on a pavement in a busy marketplace, was taken up in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday. Cutting across party lines, members called the incident, which was reported by HT in its Sunday edition, “shameful".

Congress member Ashwini Kumar, who raised the matter in Zero Hour, said the country takes pride in giving importance to human rights, yet nobody cares about the rights of the common man as it was evident in the case of the woman.

“We should ensure that such a thing should never happen," Kumar said.
