An Indian woman has given birth to a baby boy at a toilet of Kamalapur Railway Police Station in Dhaka.

The woman, Roksana Akter, 30, and the newborn have been admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

Kamalapur Railway Police Station OC Yasin Faruq said Roksana and the child were first taken to nearby Mugda Hospital on Monday night after she had given birth.

Roksana’s husband ‘Abdul’, a Bangladeshi citizen, was a furniture trader in India, police said.

They got married after a brief love affair and Roksana became pregnant, OC Yasin said.

Abdul took Roksana to his sister’s home in Narayanganj over a month ago, the police officer said.   

But Abdul tricked Roksana and fled after stealing her passport some days ago.

According to constable Md Fazlu Mia, Roksana got on a train in Narayanganj and the ticket checker handed her to the police at Kamalapur around 11 pm on Monday as she was unable to get off.

OC Yasin said they would figure out Roksana’s home and whereabouts in India when she recovers.

The baby was admitted to the intensive care unit for children at the hospital, reports bdnews24.
