Parents of both the infants raised a furore at the hospital and accused the doctors and staffs for not attending the newborns immediately. They have filed a complaint against the hospital at Lalbag police station.

Superintendent, Prof Niranjan Mohanty said, the conditions of the newborns were extremely critical. Both the neonates were on ventilator support and the doctors did their best to revive them.

"However, we have instituted an enquiry by a high-level team comprising deputy superintendent, two HoDs and the hospital administrator. The team would submit its report within a day," he added.
