The twins were being taken for burial and at that time family experienced the movement in one of the packages and get shocked as the boy is alive and squirming. The family rushed to the nearby nursing home and where a newborn was treated but after few days because of multi-organ dysfunction, the baby died.
Delhi government took this result after the results from the panel formed by the government to investigate the matter. The panel found hospital guilty as they were not followed prescribed medical norms while dealing with newborn infants.
