During the time of the delivery, the nurse pulled the foetus so carelessly that it resulted in splitting the body of the baby into two parts.

The Rajasthan health minister Raghu Sharma ordered an inquiry into the shocking incident in which the nursing staff of a health centre in Jaisalmer pulled out a baby with brutal force, severing its head, on Thursday.

While delivering the child, one of the nurses was said to have "pulled so hard" that the baby was split into two parts last January 6 in a community health center in Ramgarh, reports The Hindustan Times.

The mother is said to be battling for her life after the incident. Also, the family didn't inform that the head of the baby was inside the womb.

The woman was then taken to Jawahar Hospital for further treatment after staff said there had been a "complication" with the birth.
