While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family.

Police and government enquiries are under way and two doctors have been sacked following the incident at the Shalimar Bagh Max Hospital in north west Delhi.

The newborn boy was found moving in a body bag hours after his parents were told he had passed away.

Max Super Speciality Hospital had wrongly declared a newborn dead along with his stillborn twin. "I was shocked. I couldn't believe my eyes".

Police officers said the focus of the questioning was to find out the specific duties of each member of the medical team at the time of the incident, seek justification for three expensive injections and a Rs 50-lakh bill that was quoted to the family.

Malik said the family had requested financial assistance from the Delhi government to move the baby to a "bigger and better" facility. "They betrayed us", Mr Malik said.

"We didn't get anything from the government except false promises", he said. "We are managing to maintain his vitals at the moment but the condition is very serious", Dr Sandeep Gupta, from the Centre, said.

"We don't want to keep our baby at Max Hospital".

Max Healthcare had earlier said it had made a decision to terminate the services of two doctors allegedly involved in the case. The Indian Medical Association is investigating the case.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also tweeted saying authorities would take the "strongest action" if someone is found at fault. "These two cases have been clubbed and we will take action accordingly", he added.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Wednesday assured of action against the hospital and doctors after receiving the final report of a panel constituted by the Health Department to probe the alleged medical negligence by Max Hospital.

"No ECG (Electrocardiography) tracings were done to trace whether the child was alive", the source said, referring to the findings of the initial report.
