HYDERABAD: The fate of conjoined twins Veena and Vani now lies in the hands of Telangana government, as London-based surgeons Owase Jeelani and David Dunaway have already submitted a report with all the details regarding surgery to be performed and the expenditure involved in it.        

Owase Jeelani and David Dunaway, who visited Niloufer Hospital in February to examine the 11-year-old twins Veena and Vani, had presented the report to Niloufer authorities recently and doctors there have passed on the same to the State to take a decision.

Being a sensitive and complicated case, it is the government which has to take a decision on the matter. “We expect a decision from the government on the future course to be taken within a week,’’ said a Niloufer doctor. The London doctors said though complicated, there is an 80 percent chance of separating Veena and Vani through operation.
