A newborn girl who was found alive just before her burial after being declared dead by a physician at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) has finally lost her battle for life.
Mariam died at the neonatal intensive care unit of the DMCH around 11:30pm on Wednesday, said in-charge of DMCH police outpost Inspector Bachchu Mia.
The doctor declared the premature baby dead minutes after Shahinur Akhter, wife of Yeasin, gave birth to her in the early hours of October 16.
Yeasin took the baby first to Azimpur graveyard where he was asked to go to Rayerbazar graveyard where the burial cost is comparatively low.
However, the baby moved her body just before she was placed in the grave.
Later, she was moved back to the hospital.
The hospital authorities formed a committee to look into the matter which held the failure of the doctors and hospital responsible for it.
