On 8 December, the Delhi government had cancelled the Shalimar Bagh-based 250-bedded hospital's licence after its doctors on 30 November declared the baby dead.

On Wednesday, the hospital said operations were resumed after the Court of Finance Commissioner on Tuesday put on hold the 8 December order.

AAP leader Dilip Pandey said the court has given the Lieutenant Governor all administrative powers of Delhi and he should be accountable.

The leader also said that the party doubted whether the appellate authority who stayed their government's decision "worked for the people or for crony capitalists".

Meanwhile an official statement from Baijal's office distanced itself from the decision.

"The matter with respect to Max Hospital licence is not before the LG. It is before the Court of Financial Commissioner. It is also clarified that no Max officials have met the LG or any officer of Raj Niwas", it said.
