Rabeya has opened her eyes yesterday, but her sister Rokeya is still unconscious, said Rafikul Islam, father of the twins today.
The 33-hour-long operation to separate the sisters started at July 31, where 100 doctors from Bangladesh and 32 from Hungary took part.
This operation is a milestone in the subcontinent said Dr Samanta Lal Sen, the national coordinator at the National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
