A three-member panel formed by the Delhi government also found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants. The second child was stillborn; the first was declared dead a short time later.

"After being declared dead, babies were given to us in packets, when we left for cremation ground we noticed movement and on checking found one was breathing".

The baby was being treated at a hospital in Pitampura.

On Sunday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said there should be a legal framework to check "open loot" and "criminal negligence" by private hospitals, in the wake of the premature baby being wrongly declared dead by a city-based private hospital.

A medical negligence case has been registered under section 308 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the hospital. Dr. KK Aggarwal, president of the association, attempted to take some heat off the fired physicians.
