Fifteen new born babies have died in the state-run North Bengal Medical College and Hospital at Siliguri in the district since yesterday, hospital superintendent Dr Amerendra Nath Sarker said today.

Low weight during birth, infection and some other reasons were there behind the unfortunate incident, Sarker said. "Around 100-150 babies were admitted daily in critical condition," he said.

North Bengal Development Minister Goutam Deb said if anyone was found guilty for the death of the babies, action would be taken against them.
