6-month-old girl kidnapped hospital, later found on e-rickshaw
A six-month-old girl was allegedly kidnapped while her mother was caught up in the queue to get the blood sample of her elder daughter at the Bara Hindu Rao Hospital in North Delhi on Saturday morning. Eight hours later, the baby girl identified as Afifa, was found on an e-rickshaw in North-west Delhi’s Model town area. Police said that multiple teams have been formed to nab the woman who kidnapped Afifa, at the earliest.
According to senior police officers of the North district, the incident took place at around 8.15 am when Afifa accompanied her mother. When Afifa started crying, a lab assistant suggested that the woman hand over the six-month-old infant to the lady who was sitting in front of her. Few minutes passed and the mother turned back to see the woman playing with Afifa.
However, when the mother again turned back, she found that her daughter and the lady were missing. Police said that in her complaint, Afifa’s mother stated that the hospital authorities did not take quick action when she raised an alarm about her missing daughter and only made a PCR call at 8.59 am.
Police further said Afifa’s mother described the lady as a person wearing a red bindi and a huge nosepin. Police said that they have registered a case of kidnapping at the Sabzi Mandi police station.
According to the police, due to the non-functional CCTV cameras in the government hospital, they did not get any footage for clues to track the baby girl. However, concerned authorities denied the cop’s claim saying that the CCTV cameras installed at the hospital were fully- functional.
