The twins were born 22 week prematurely, and were frail, but whatever reason was given by the doctor to announce the death of a live baby, it should still be investigating and such horrifying scenarios should be avoided in future. "He was taken to another hospital in Pitampura where he was admitted and is now under treatment", Praveen Kumar was quoted as saying to the Hindustan Times. But on the way to the funeral, the parents saw the living twin squirming around and rushed him to another hospital.

In a shocking case of negligence, doctors at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, declared a baby dead, along with his stillborn twin, on Thursday though the child was still alive.

"A preliminary report is to be be submitted within 72 hours and a final report within a week", Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain said, ordering a probe into the case. "Strongest action wud be taken if found guilty (sic)".

Soon after their birth, the family was informed that the baby girl was still-born.
