A 25-year-old Marathi actress, Pooja Zunjar, and her newborn baby died within hours of birth in Maharashtra's Hingoli district on Sunday due to unavailability of ambulance, police said.

Relatives of the deceased actress claimed she would have been alive had they managed to get an ambulance in time.

The incident took place on Sunday morning in Hingoli district, around 590 kms from Mumbai, in the Marathwada region.

The police official said Pooja was rushed to a primary health centre in Goregaon, her native place in the district, around 2 am on Sunday after she went into labour. The newborn died within few minutes of delivery, officials said.

"The doctors at the primary health centre then advised Pooja's family members to shift her to the Hingoli civil hospital, which is around 40 km from Goregaon," officials added.

"They somehow managed to get a private ambulance to rush Pooja to the civil hospital in Hingoli, but she died during the journey," the official said.

Police have registered a medico-legal case and are recording statements of Pooja's relatives, he added.

Pooja had played lead roles in two Marathi movies. She had taken a break from work due to pregnancy.
