20-year-old woman today gave birth in a moving train but both the mother and the child died immediately after, between Katihar and Kishanganj stations in Bihar.

A pregnant Kashmiri Khatun was travelling with her husband from Delhi to Kishanganj by North East Express but her health condition started deteriorating before the train reached Barauni station, GRP officer-in-charge at Kishanganj Mohammad Muzaleem said.

She was given medicines and administered injections by doctors at Barauni station but her condition deteriorated further as the train left Katihar.

She delivered a baby on board the train but both the mother and the child died immediately afterwards, the GRP OC said.

Her husband’s plea that the bodies be allowed to be taken to Kishanganj for the last rites was allowed as the deaths were natural, he added.
