Departmental proceedings have also been ordered against Dr Alka Sharma, CMS, women's wing.

"A critically-ill child was brought to the men's wing of the hospital, where paediatricians were available. Instead of stablising the child, her family was sent to the women's wing, from where the child was sent back," officials said.

According to reports, the four-day-old baby girl died after being shuttled from one wing of the hospital to another.

The girl born at a private hospital on June 15 had a difficulty in breathing after which her parents brought her to the government hospital in Bareilly.

Her family alleged they were made to run from one wing of the hospital to another for over three hours due to which the infant died.
