The matter came to light after the husband of the deceased registered a complaint against the hospital manager Ranjit Nishad.
According to the complaint, a 30-year-old pregnant woman named Sonavat Devi, a resident of the Jainpur area, died at Satyam hospital in the Gulriha area of Gorakhpur on Tuesday.
