Max Hospital twins case: Family seek CBI probe

SNS | New Delhi |

The family of the twins, one of whom was wrongly declared ‘dead’ along with its stillborn twin by Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, demanded a CBI probe into the case on Thursday after an appellate authority stayed the Delhi government order cancelling the hospital’s licence.

The newborn-boy later died at a nursing home in Pitampura due to infection and other medical problems.

While talking to media, Kailash, grandfather of the deceased twins, alleged that the family was “not even informed” about the stay order.

Kailash said that, we were removed by the police, after we tried to protest outside Max Hospital. But, now the cancellation order has been stayed. We want justice and so we demand a CBI probe into the whole case so that things get clear.

He said they have hired an advocate to pursue the case and claimed that on Thursday a plea was filed by him in Rohini court for a status report in the ongoing investigation in the case.

Rishi Pal Singh, counsel for the aggrieved family, said “if the appellate authority summons us, we will present our case or else we may move the high court”.

The Court of Financial Commissioner stayed the cancellation order issued by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) till January 9, when the next hearing will be held.

On November 30, the premature twins were allegedly declared dead by Max Hospital, and were handed in a polythene bag to their parents, who later realised that one of them was alive while on way their to a crematorium to perform the last rites.

The mother of the twins was brought to Max hospital from a nursing home in Paschim Vihar.

Doctors’ employment terminated 

The private hospital in Max Super Speciality Hospital on 4 December terminated the services of two doctors involved in the declaration of a 22-week-old premature baby as dead, while one was alive.
