Supreme Court orders Centre to treat conjoined twins

New Delhi: The Supreme court directed the central government to air lift the conjoined twins Saba and Farah (16) and treat them at AIIMS New Delhi within ten days. A Bench comprising Justices K.S. Radha Krishnan and Deepak Misra passed an order to bring them to Delhi. Earlier the court had directed the central government to constitute a medical board and ensure their treatment.  However, the matter took a poignant turn and the court insisted that they be treated at Patna and be provided monthly expenses towards treatment and nutrition.
