New Delhi, July 30 (IANS) The Supreme Court Monday asked the Bihar government to make arrangements for bringing teenage conjoined twins Saba and Farah to Delhi by an air ambulance for treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
The court also asked the central government to make arrangements for sending an air ambulance from Delhi to bring back the sisters to explore the possibility of separating them surgically.
On the direction of the apex court, the central government formed a three-member team of doctors to examine the possibility of surgically separating the sisters.
