 Delhi’s local government on Friday withdrew the licence of a hospital that mistakenly declared a live infant dead.

“We have cancelled with immediate effect the licence of Max Hospital Shalimarbag,” Delhi’s Health Minister Satyendra Jain said.

Jain said the hospital had been told that it could not admit any new patients but the treatment of those already there could continue.

The minister said a probe had found the hospital guilty of criminal negligence in the case of the infant declared dead.

“This is also the third case where the hospital has been found at fault in the past three months,” Jain said.

Hospitals in India require several regulatory licences linked to their buildings and operations.

Jain did not specify which licence or licences were being revoked.

The newborn at the centre of the case died in a Delhi nursing home on Wednesday a week after he was declared dead by doctors at Max Hospital Shalimarbag.

The Kumar family had been informed after the premature birth of twins on Nov. 30 that the girl had died and the boy was critical.

Soon after they were told that the boy too had died.

The baby boy started moving in the body bag as family members made their way to the funeral.

The infant was rushed to another hospital.

Max Healthcare, which runs a chain of hospitals including the one in Shalimarbag, has sacked two doctors involved in the case but said its internal investigation was not yet complete. (dpa/NAN)
