Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: With Jaga and Kalia, the separated conjoined twins of Odisha awaiting their homecoming from Delhi AIIMS early next month, the doctors today fitted a specially designed protective gear on Jaga’s head.

While Jaga has been given a helmet, Kalia is yet to get one. Doctors have made helmets mandatory for the duo especially when they go outside since it would protect their head in case of a fall.

On the other hand the state government has initiated the process to bring back the twins from Delhi AIIMS. Once they return to Odisha, their health will be monitored by local doctors.

Sources said the twins are likely to be discharged in the first week of March.

The condition of Jaga is quite well and he has recovered 98 per cent. He is able to move freely outside and exercise under the supervision of nurses while Kalia who is a little weaker than his brother and is likely to take six more months to recover fully, added sources.

According to information, a five member team of doctors from SCB Medical College and Hospital along with Health Minister Pratap Jena is scheduled to visit Delhi AIIMS to take stock of the health condition of the duo.

The twins who are nearly three-years-old now underwent a landmark Craniopagus surgery between August and October last year at Delhi AIIMS.
