Aradhana, who was separated from her conjoined sister Stuti recently, passed away tonight after struggling for life for over two weeks.
According to doctors, Aradhana passed away at 9.20pm after all attempts to revive her proved futile, a release by Padhar Mission Hospital where the complex surgery was performed, said.
She had suffered cardiac arrest twice earlier in the day.
Aradhana developed seticemia (infection in her blood) after the surgery was performed to separate her from Stuti with whom she was joined at liver and heart.
The conjoined twins were operated on June 20 by a team of experts including 23 doctors from India and abroad.
On July 2, both the sisters turned one following, which their birthday was celebrated, in the hospital with much fanfare.
Madhya Pradesh chief minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan specially went to Betul to bless them.
The conjoined twins were born to Maya and Hariram Yadav on July 2, 2011.
Since they were unable to take care of the twins due to financial problems, they decided to put them in the care of Padhar Mission Hospital, where they were born.
The hospital authorities decided to go for a complex surgery to separate them in June.
The entire hospital staff which took care of both the girls were in a state of shock after Aradhana passed away.
Meanwhile, her sister, Stuti is doing well post surgery.
