Family members of the prematurely born twins, who were declared dead by Delhi's Max hospital on Friday, protested against the hospital administration and said that they will continue this until action is taken against the hospital authorities. This baby was one of the twins delivered on November 30 morning.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, "Enquiry ordered. We ripped it open, found bits of plastic and the baby inside, breathing", said Kailash, the baby's grandfather. "They did this so that they wouldn't have to keep the babies in their hospital and wanted to get rid of their responsibilities", said Ashish.

Parents discovered one of their newborn twins was alive right before a cremation ceremony for the infant was set to begin, six hours after an upscale hospital in Delhi, India, declared both babies dead and handed their bodies over to the family in a plastic bag.

A day after their birth, the "dead" twins were being taken for a burial when their parents realized that one of their babies was squirming in the bag.

The Delhi government ordered a probe into the incident and sought a preliminary report within three days. The other baby was stillborn.

The police said in a statement that Shalimar Bagh police station received a phone call about the incident on Thursday.

On Friday, reacting on reports regarding negligence at the level of the Hospital located in Shalimar Bagh here, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain said an inquiry has been initiated and a preliminary report will be submitted within 72 hours. "He had been wrapped in a polybag for more than 10 minutes and we were about to cremate him", Kumar said. "The details of the case need to be verified and action needs to be taken against the personnel concerned, if found guilty of medical negligence", Athani said in the letter.

The hospital issued a statement saying they "were shaken and concerned at this rare incident", adding an enquiry has been initiated.

A case has been registered under IPC Section 308, which deals with attempt to commit culpable homicide and is punishable by up to seven years in jail.

The hospital also said it was in constant touch with the parents and ready to extend all support.

"Under the court's direction, we will also consult Delhi Medical Council or Indian Medical council, and convey to them details of all circumstances".
