At least 30 children died in the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Gorakhpur during the last 48 hours, district magistrate Rajeev Rautela said.

He said 17 children died in the neo-natal ward, 5 in AES (acute encephalitis syndrome) ward and 8 in the general ward.

To a specific question as to whether the deaths occurred due to shortage in supply of oxygen, Rautela said he found out from the doctors that no death occurred due to lack of oxygen.
