The baby was delivered on September 8 at 32 weeks and weighed 1.8 kg. The baby boy who was prematurely delivered following the Supreme Court’s order to terminate the pregnancy of a 13-year-old rape victim, succumbed on Sunday at the State-run JJ Hospital. On September 6, the SC allowed the termination of the pregnancy, which was to be carried out two days later. On September 8, the doctors delivered a baby boy. Medical experts said that premature babies can develop complications but with good NICU care, babies as small as 700 grams in weight have survived.
