Hyderabad: A 11-month old baby boy, coming from Doha with his parents, was declared brought dead at a private medical centre at the airport here amid lack of clarity on whether the death occurred onboard the flight.

After the Qatar Airways flight landed, the baby, suspected to be suffering from breathing problem, was immediately shifted to a private medical centre at the airport, but declared brought dead at 2.29 am, Airport Police Station Inspector A Gangadhar said.
He, however, added no complaint had been registered.
