Jammu & Kashmir: Doctors help woman deliver via WhatsApp call in snow-capped Keran

In Jammu and Kashmir’s remote snow-capped region of Keran, doctors helped a pregnant woman deliver over a WhatsApp call. Due to snowfall, it was difficult for the family to take this woman to the hospital by helicopter.

Kralpura’s block medical officer Dr Mir Mohammad Shafi said that on Friday night, they received a patient suffering from labor pain at the Keran PHC (primary health centre). He told that she was suffering from many complex health problems during pregnancy.

A helicopter was needed to take the woman to a hospital with maternity facilities as Keran is cut off from the rest of Kupwara district by road during winter.

Incessant snowfall on Thursday and Friday prevented the authorities from arranging helicopters, forcing medical workers at the Keran PHC to seek alternative means to assist in the delivery.

Dr. Parvez, an obstetrician posted at Kralpura sub-district hospital, told Dr. Arshad Sofi and his staff at Keran PHC about the process of giving birth to a child over a WhatsApp call.

Dr. Shafi said that the woman gave birth to a healthy baby girl after six hours. Presently both mother and child are under the supervision of doctors and are fine.

CM Eknath Shinde says Maharashtra govt will protect Sharad Pawar after NCP chief gets death threat on Twitter

Sharad Pawar

Maharahstra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday took serious note of the death threat issued to Nationalist Congress Party President Sharad Pawar earlier today by unknown persons.

Shinde said he has spoken to senior police officers and given instructions for investigation into the tweets. Shinde said Sharad Pawar’s safety will be fully taken care of by the state.

A Twitter user posted saying the NCP chief will meet the same fate as rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar, who was shot dead in Pune on August 20, 2013.

In his reaction, Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said threatening any leader or overstepping the bounds of civility while expressing oneself on social media will not be tolerated.

Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule, the Baramati Member of Parliament, met Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar and demanded immediate action. She submitted printouts of the death threat to the police. Earlier on Friday, Sule told media that Sharad Pawar has received threats through a website. Claiming such actions as “low-level politics”, Sule urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah and the Maharashtra Home Minister to look into the matter.

Sharad Pawar is a critical leader for the Opposition formation in the run-up to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. The veteran leader has been a bridge for several regional parties in their interaction with former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

Pawar had himself outed the challenge within the NCP posed by several people, including nephew Ajit Pawar, by threatening to resign as NCP president. Grassroots leaders of the NCP prevailed upon Pawar not to resign from the party leadership, thereby stalemating potential plans for the NCP to bail out of the Maha Vikas Aghadi and ally itself with the BJP.

Pawar will be attending the Opposition jamboree in Patna, Bihar on June 23 where senior opposition leaders from a range of parties will be attending. The meet which was initially slated for June 12 had to be called off since Rahul Gandhi was away on his US trip.
