Delhi's police in their statement said that it had transferred the case to its crime unit.

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.

According to a Delhi government official, the government's preliminary inquiry report had found that "no [electrocardiography] tracings were done to trace whether the child was alive".

A baby who was declared dead and woke up in a plastic bag while the family was driving to his funeral has now died, according to local media.

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. The report suggested that the doctors had not conducted electrocardiography to check whether the babies it declared dead were still alive or not. Gupta said that the boy had died from multiple organ dysfunction.

"After opening the plastic bag, we found the baby was breathing", said Kumar, who rushed to a nearby nursing home in Pitampura along with other family members. I lived through the death of my daughter, and death of my son, not once but twice.

"We will continue to protest till our demand is fulfilled", he said. He also said he will also not get his wife, who is still admitted at Max Hospital, discharged from it, until they get justice. While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family. "We wish them the strength to cope with their loss", the statement said.

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

Satyender Jain, state's health minister stated that the hospital could lose its license if a probe found it guilty of medical negligence.

Max Healthcare fired the two doctors considered responsible earlier this week, but emphasized that the decision to let the doctors go should not be interpreted as an admission of guilt.
