I got a god's gift as my daughter was born on 8th Jan'2013 (10:10 P.M). She was intentionaly kept in incubator just for Rs. 2000/-. Doctor at Shekhar Hsopital & Research Centre, Varanasi has not set temperature correctly. Due to very high temp in incubator, fire was broken in the room where my daughter was kept and my baby got severe HEAD & FACE burn JUAT AFTER 4 HOUR OF HER BIRTH. She got medical care at various hospitals in Varanasi from 9th Jan'13 to 10th March'13 followed by treatment at Safadarjung Hospital, New Delhi for one month. She undergone three surgeries at Safadarjung. She survived but lost her nose and right ear. As doctors told, her face reconstruction seems impossible in India.

It has deprived a newly born baby girl (Age:- 4 hour at the time of incident) of her rights to lead normal life as baby was severely burnt in incubator due to medical negligence of doctor couple Dr Abha Rani and Dr S K Mishra of Shekhar Hospital & Research Centre, SHivpur Bypass, Varanasi.
