The grieving man said he went with his wife to the hospital on Monday where the doctor asked him to deposit money before he could examine her.

”My wife began labour around 11 pm. Since I could not withdraw any money, I called the attention of a nurse within our locality. But as my wife delivered, blood was coming out non-stop. All efforts by the nurse to stop the bleeding failed,” he said.
