Bhubaneswar: Former conjoined twins Jaga and Kalia will leave New Delhi for Odisha on Friday.
They will board Rajdhani Express in the evening and arrive in Cuttack on Saturday. Two doctors from Cuttack’s SCB Medical College and Hospital will accompany the twins on their journey home.
After returning to Odisha, Jaga and Kalia will undergo treatment under the supervision of a team of six doctors at the ICU of SCB Medical College and Hospital.
Notably, the Odisha government had recently confirmed the twins’ return from New Delhi.
The former conjoined twins, who hail from Milipada village in Kandhamal district, were successfully separated after an 11-hour-long surgery by a team of 30 specialists from the neurosurgery, neuro-anaesthesia and plastic surgery departments at AIIMS, New Delhi on October 25, 2017. They had been undergoing treatment at the premier Delhi hospital since then.
