Ranvir Singh, additional commissioner of police (operations), said that “The man reported that his wife had developed labour pain and that he had nobody to seek help from. The call was transferred to the nearest PCR van PV Zebra-43 that reached the spot within five minutes and shifted the pregnant woman, Laxmibai. The vehicle rushed towards Shri Dada Dev Matri Avum Shishu Chikitsalaya,”.

Laxmibai stays near the railway station with her husband Shankar, who is a labourer.

According to the PCR van’s in-charge ASI Rajbir, woman constable Bhagwati who was deputed as gunperson in the vehicle helped with the delivery.

Soon after her admission, the woman gave birth to another girl,” said ASI Rajbir.

The condition of the twins and the mother is stable, police said. The PCR team shall also be rewarded for the excellent work, Singh said.
