A baby born in India has left doctors shocked with his two heads, three arms, and two hearts, Daily Mail reported.

The parents, Shaheen Khan and her husband Sohail, were expecting twins. On March 28, however, conjoined twins were delivered.

The condition is a rare one and is called dicephalic parapagus, where two infants are joined by one torso. It affects one in a million births and usually results in stillbirth.

The twins, however, have survived and are under doctors’ observation.

The mother too is in the hospital.

One of the doctors, Dr Lahoti, said: "These kinds of cases are rare and the condition of babies remains uncertain, especially in the initial days."
