Separated conjoined twins: Jaga takes a stroll at India Gate

New Delhi: One of two craniopagus conjoined twins; Jaga was seen taking a stroll at India Gate in New Delhi and it was for the first time that Jaga stepped out of AIIMS New Delhi after he was separated from his conjoined brother-Kalia through a major surgery last year.

It was indeed a heart-warming moment particularly for the family as well as thousands of people in Odisha who were praying for the speedy recovery of both Jaga and his brother Kalia since their separation surgery conducted at AIIMS on October 25, 2017.

Apart from this, Jaga was also seen driving a battery operated vehicle under the strict supervision of his mother.

Jaga’s brother Kalia on the other hand is also improving and is now being administered semi-liquid food. However, as his hands and legs are still stiff, wheelchair is being used for him. Both the children will be discharged from the hospital after their condition improves fully, said doctors at AIIMS.

It is pertinent to mention here that the two craniopagus conjoined twins from Milipada village in Kandhamal district were successfully separated by a team of 30 specialists from neurosurgery, neuro-anaesthesia and plastic surgery departments of AIIMS, New Delhi.

OTV had first telecast the plight of the twins and their family and later Odisha government swung into action and extended financial aid and other support for the treatment of the twins.
