The ailing woman consequently delivered the child in the centre's toilet.

The incident came to light on May 27, when the woman's father-in-law filed a complaint accusing the centre's staff of negligence.

A departmental inquiry confirmed the allegation, the official added.

Chief Medical Officer Sanjay Bhandarkar said departmental action was taken on the inquiry report conducted by Deputy CMO K P Singh.

Staff nurse Anjelina has been transferred and her increments have been stopped while warning letters were issued to Superintendent Ramesh Chandra and medical officer Manjit Kaur, Bhandarkar said.
