New Delhi: A premature baby, who was delivered in Max Hospital and wrongly declared dead last week, has died during treatment, police said Wednesday.

The baby, born on November 30, died last evening.

Aslam Khan, deputy commissioner of police (northwest), confirmed the news.

A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case Tuesday had found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants.

The case relates to the birth of twins (a boy and a girl) on November 30. The parents alleged the babies were declared dead by the Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh but they later discovered that the boy was alive.

The parents said they were told by the hospital that both the babies were stillborn. The infants were handed over to them in a polythene bag, they said.

Just before their last rites, the family discovered that the baby boy was breathing, the police said.

On December 2, Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain had said the hospital's license could be can canceled if a probe found it guilty of medical negligence.
