Newborn declared dead: Docs, hospital staff called for

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Police have asked doctors and some other staffers of the city-based Max Hospital to appear for interrogation in connection with the case of a premature baby being wrongly declared dead.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Northern Range) Sagar Preet Hooda said the hospital had been asked to furnish the duty roster.

Police were also seeking opinion of experts in the case, he said.

Another official said they had asked doctors and operation theatre staff to appear for interrogation.

Investigators had yesterday sent a notice to the hospital to join the probe and share documents and the CCTV footage.

The case pertains to the birth of twins (boy and girl) on November 30. Both the babies were allegedly declared dead by the Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh. However, the family later found the boy was alive.

Police have already registered a case of attempt to commit culpable homicide against two doctors.
