At 7.28am she gave birth to a baby girl in the corridor of the train.

Staff immediately rushed the new mother to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital by metro.

Speaking to Rail.co, a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) spokesman said: “The baby and the mother are now in healthy condition.

“Two station manager level female employees of DMRC have been deputed at the hospital since the morning to take care of them, as initially there were no female family members to attend to the mother and the baby.”

“Other necessary help, such as providing a vehicle for movement of the family members, has also been arranged,” he added.

DMRC’s managing director, Mangu Singh, also announced that any medical expenses incurred at the hospital will be paid by DMRC.
