Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: The unexpected transfer of Niloufer Hospital superintendent N.C.K.Reddy on Tuesday has again thrown a question mark on the fate of the conjoined twins, Vani and Veena, who are awaiting a separation surgery here.

The twins were shifted from the Government General Hospital, Guntur, on the initiative of Dr. Reddy.

The twins were abandoned by parents after birth three years ago and were initially admitted to the Guntur hospital. Dr.Reddy, who offered to lead a team of doctors for the surgery had them shifted here and had been taking care of the twins.
