    A SET of conjoined twins - who couldn't be hugged by their parents for fear of injuring them - have finally returned home following a successful separation. Seven-month-old's Shaily and Shilpa, from Aber village in Madhya Pradesh, India, were born fused at the abdomen, chest and liver last November. So severe was their their condition, they were whisked to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi - where staff spent four months planning their operation. And thanks to the help of 30 staff - including leading senior paediatrician Dr. Minu Bajpai - they were successfully separated during a gruelling eight-hour op. Now, their overjoyed parents have hailed it a miracle as they can finally hug their daughters without fear of hurting them.
