A woman delivered a baby boy outside the labour room of a private hospital in Hyderabad , prompting authorities to order a probe into the incident.

The woman, her relatives and witnesses alleged that she gave birth outside the labour room due to "indifference" of the staff of the Gandhi Hospital.

Twentyone-year-old Durga came to Gandhi Hospital along with her mother-in-law on Tuesday night and was admitted there.

However, she gave birth outside the labour room. Witnesses said some women assisted Durga covering her with a blanket.

However, the Hospital Superintendent said "Durga was taken to the labour room and treatment was initiated on Tuesday night itself. But we don't know how and why she came out of the room."

Hospital authorities had ordered an enquiry into the incident.
