The infant died due to an infection at a nursing home after battling for life for almost a week - which jolted the entire family, which was demanding the arrest of erring doctors. When the parents were on their way to a crematorium to perform their last rites, they found that the boy was still alive, and rushed him to another hospital.
The baby was born on 30 November at Max Super Speciality in Shalimar Bagh area in the national capital, while his twin sister was stillborn.
A Delhi government panel found on Tuesday that the hospital did not conduct electrocardiography to determine whether the baby was alive. The baby was later admitted to Aggarwal Hospital, Pitampura. However, Dr Sanjeev Gupta of Aggarwal Hospital said that baby was of just 22 weeks and it was hard for him to survive from the start as he needed too much support. "The complications later began and the child had multi-organ dysfunction", he told PTI.
Aslam Khan, deputy commissioner of police (northwest), also confirmed the news. PTI reported that the child's father, Ashok Kumar, has refused to accept the body as a mark of protest.

"At the hospital we were told that one twin was stillborn while the other died later as his condition was critical".
Talking to Mail Today, Ashish said, "I will not take my son's body until the two doctors are arrested". While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family. Hours after the death of the baby boy, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain held a press conference, where he announced that the final report of the ongoing probe into alleged medical negligence by the private hospital is expected in two days and based on that "strictest action" will be taken. In its initial report, the penal has found the hospital and doctors guilty.
Delhi police said they had collected hospital records for the mother and treatment records for the newborn babies.
Jain reiterated that on November 22, a notice was sent to Max Hospital for allegedly violating norms related to services to be given to EWS patients.
