After Mylavaam MLA Vasanta Krishna Prasad found out about the incident, he immediately arranged for an ambulance and sent the woman and her newborn baby to a government hospital at Vijayawada.

Prasad also spoke to the medical officer at the local hospital, from where the woman has allegedly turned away and ordered them to ensure that such incidents are not repeated.

He has also informed District Collector A Md Imtiyaz about the incident and asked him to take strict actions against those responsible.

Despite of government taking initiatives for the health of their citizens, why does such unhuman acts prevail in many states is still a big question.
