New Delhi: A premature baby, who was delivered in a private hospital in Delhi and wrongly declared dead last week, has died during treatment.

The new-born twins were declared dead by the private hospital and handed over to their parents in sealed plastic bags even as one of them was still alive. The parents realised this when they were on their way to perform the last rites.

A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborns.

According to the twins' grandfather Pravin Malik, just as they were on their way to perform the last rites, he noticed there was some movement in the packet in which the kids were handed over to them. "We were utterly shocked at the hospital's apathy," said Pravin.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain had said the hospital's licence could be cancelled if a probe found it guilty of medical negligence.

This shocking incident came just weeks after a Gurgaon hospital charged the parents of a seven-year-old dengue patient Rs 16 lakh for a 15-day stay at the hospital. At the end of the stay, the girl died. The father had paid the amount upfront but accused the hospital of inflating the bill and imposing arbitrary costs. Despite the high cost, he said, the doctors paid little attention to the child’s health.
