Delhi government cancels licence of Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh for wrongly declaring baby dead

The hospital’s administration was a habitual offender and the negligence on its part was unacceptable, Health Minister Satyendar Jain said.

The government of Delhi on Friday announced that it had cancelled the licence of Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh after an infant who declared dead by the hospital was found alive. The negligence on the part of the hospital was unacceptable, Health Minister Satyendar Jain said. He added that the hospital was a habitual offender.

The hospital, a government panel said on Tuesday, did not conduct an electrocardiography test to check whether the baby was alive. The baby died a day later at a private nursing home.

The baby and his twin sister were born at the hospital on November 30. But the hospital said that both premature twins were stillborn. 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. They had also alleged that the hospital handed the babies to them in a plastic bag.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
