Ranchi: A woman in Jharkhand gave birth to five babies at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi on Monday. According to medical experts, it is a rare case of pregnancy.
All five newborns and the mother are said to be in healthy condition. As the babies are underweight, they are kept in the Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) under observation.
