So, the family put the funeral ceremony on hold to dig up their seemingly deceased baby an hour later.
The family were shocked to find their newborn “alive and crying” when they dug her body out.
Two members of the hospital staff’s gynaecology department were subsequently suspended while authorities investigate.
Banihal Block Medical Officer (BMO) Dr Rabia Khan said: “We have already placed a junior staff nurse and sweeper working in the gynaecology section under suspension with immediate effect, pending an inquiry.”
Local village leader Manzoor Alyas Wani alleged that the youngster had been declared dead without receiving proper medical attention.
Wani said that the baby had been rushed back to the hospital after discovering it was alive, The Sun reported.
He added: “After initial treatment, she was referred to Srinagar for specialised treatment by the doctors.”
One protestor said: “This is height of negligence and non-professionalism on the part of doctors and other staff posted at SDH Banihal.”
