A famous Marathi actress Pooja Zanjur passed away from childbirth complications in the ambulance bringing her to a hospital in Hingoli district of Maharashtra. According to the officials, her new-born baby died minutes after delivery!

Pooja was first brought to a Goregaon-based primary medical center around 2 am on Oct 20 when she complained of labour pain. When her baby couldn't be saved, the doctors advised the family to transfer the actress to a civil hospital 40km away from the medical center. Her condition was already getting worst.

There was no ambulance available to transfer Pooja and the family had to search for a private ambulance. Sadly, the delay caused the actress her life. She died on the way to the civil hospital.

The police have registered a case and have been taking statements from Pooja's family and relatives. After playing a lead role in two Marathi movies, Pooja was taking her break from the cine world due to her pregnancy.

May the souls of the mother and baby rest in peace.
