"Vehicles cannot enter our village as there are no roads we have to carry patients to the main road from where an ambulance can be taken. In this case, we had to take the woman to the hospital by a private vehicle as the ambulance could not reach our village," one of the locals told ANI.
Reports suggest that the path to the main road is also accessible to the locals, only after they cross two drains on their way.
