"Arrangements are being made to help the parents of the conjoined boys. The twins will be sent to AIIMS in New Delhi for evaluation and treatment," Kandhamal district collector Brunda D said.
"The district administration has already provided Rs 35,000 to the family of the conjoined twins," he said, adding that an anganwadi worker has also been engaged to take care of them.
