The baby was found alive just moments before being buried.

Parents in India were told that both of their twins, born prematurely, had died in childbirth.

"The caller said one Varsha, wife of Ashish, was referred to Max Hospital from a nursing home in Paschim Vihar on account of the possibility of premature delivery", the statement said.

Members of the family and their relatives protested at the Max hospital on Friday, demanding action against the negligence.

An upscale private hospital here declared new born twins dead and handed over the infants to their parents in a polythene bag though one of them was later found to be alive.

A preliminary report is expected to arrive by Monday evening and the health department will issue the detailed report within a week, the minister said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, "Enquiry ordered. Two hours after we asked the hospital to discharge our baby, we were suddenly called and informed that our second child has also passed away", Malik added.

As the grieving family was taking the twins to the cremation ground, they noticed squirming in the package and discovered that their baby boy was showing signs of life.

The Max Hospital in a statement termed the incident "unfortunate".

"This baby was one of the twins delivered on the morning of November 30". The other baby was stillborn. "We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident", the hospital added.

According to a spokesperson at the hospital, the doctor who declared the living twin as dead has been asked to request leave immediately pending an inquiry into the matter.

The Haryana government has reportedly set up a committee to probe this matter and is expected to submit a report of action taken to the union health ministry secretary Preeti Sudan by next week.

The hospital said it was in constant touch with the parents and ready to extend all support.

A case has been registered under IPC Section 308, which deals with attempt to commit culpable homicide and is punishable by up to seven years in jail.

Delhi Medical Council's Registrar Girish Tyagi in a statement here said the council after taking suo-moto cognisance of the incident has made a decision to examine the case.

"Under the court's direction, we will also consult Delhi Medical Council or Indian Medical council, and convey to them details of all circumstances".
