"The baby died of cardiac arrest. She suffered cardiac arrest at 9 p.m. and was declared dead at 9.40 p.m," Deepak Agrawal, assistant professor neurosurgery at AIIMS, told IANS.

AIIMS Trauma Centre chief M.C. Misra said the baby had fluctuations in her heart rate since morning.

"We tried to revive when she had the attack at 9 p.m. but sadly we couldn't," he told IANS.

According to Agrawal, the baby's heart had weakened due to cardiac arrests on two previous consecutive occasions - Jan 20 and 21.

"The atmosphere is very grim in the hospital because all the staff was emotionally attached to her," he added.

The toddler had been battling for survival at AIIMS since she admitted with a fractured skull, bruises and human bite marks all over her body. Falak had undergone five life-saving surgeries.

Doctors March 9 had said that her condition had improved "nicely" and that she was likely to be discharged in a week's time.
