He said the doctors at the Nagpur hospital declared Bharadwaj brain dead and sent him back to Chhindwara.
"Bharadwaj's family members then brought him back to the Chhindwara district hospital where doctors later declared him dead as his pulse was missing and he was showing no signs of life," said Dr Dubey.
Bharadwaj was shifted to the mortuary of the hospital for postmortem this afternoon.
"However, when the mortuary sweeper was preparing the 'body' for postmortem, he suddenly noticed movement in Bharadwaj's body. He immediately informed doctors who rushed to the mortuary and shifted Bharadwaj. He responded positively to the medical treatment," said Dr Dubey.
Bharadwaj regained consciousness and his all vitals are found to be stable, he said, adding that Bharadwaj was again referred to Nagpur for better treatment.
Alleging medical negligence, Bharadwaj's relative Santosh Rajput demanded a stern action against the doctors concerned.
