The baby, Nithya, weighed 1.3 kg at the time of admission. She was later taken to Niloufer hospital for a general check-up, and the doctors there informed the attendant that she was completely healthy but needed proper feeding. She was then sent back to Shishu Vihar.

Around 7.10 pm on Sunday, some attendants at Shishu Vihar noticed Nithya was bleeding from her nose and rushed her to Niloufer Hospital, where she was declared dead.

In another instance, Begumpet police admitted the nine-month-old Satya Sri to Shishu Vihar after her mother’s demise on June 9. She was then taken to Niloufer hospital for a general check-up. The doctors at Niloufer hospital informed the attendants from Shishu Vihar that Satya Sri was suffering from a fungal infection and multiple health disorders. Subsequently, she was admitted to the hospital for treatment. She died on Sunday while undergoing treatment.

Based on the complaints filed by Srinivas, the SR Nagar police registered two cases of suspicious deaths.
