Newborn conjoined sisters who were under treatment in Karachi hospital died on Sunday before the operation meant for their separation.

“It was a complicated case and in such cases there is always a less possibility of twin’s survival,” a doctor said.

The twin sisters, conjoined at the chest and abdomen, were born in Larakana’s Sheikh Zayed Hospital last week, and shifted to Karachi’s National Institute of Child Institute (NICH) on Saturday for the operation purpose due to their unstable health condition. Medics said the girls were shifted to hospital’s ICU could not survive and died on Sunday before the operation. Their parents hail from Mehar town of Dadu district.
