DMCH outpost Sub-Inspector Bachchu Miah confirmed their deaths to the Dhaka Tribune reporting the death at around 5:15pm.
Dr Ashraf Ul Haque Kajol said yesterday that they were undergoing treatment at special care unit at neonatal department of the hospital and they were in critical condition.
The doctors feared that the sisters might share a heart which would complicate the surgery along with septic blood infection but could not conduct the necessary tests to confirm because they were very frail and could not be taken away from ventilation support.
The fears were realised today. Their father Mukul Hossain, a grocer said he would bury the children at their home in Chuadanga and did not know how to tell his wife.
He cried out over the phone: “These are our first babies!”
