Irfan Khan, husband of Parveena said that his wife was in a critical condition when he took her to the district hospital in Bharatpur. "My pregnant wife had to deliver a child. She was referred from Sikri to the Janana Hospital in the district headquarter but the doctors here mentioned that we should go to Jaipur because we are Muslim.
