Woman flees from govt hosp with newborn, caught on cam | Noida News – Times of India

NOIDA: Police are on the lookout for a woman who allegedly stole a one-day-old baby boy from a government hospital early on Wednesday morning.
According to the police, they received information about the incident around 6.30 am on Wednesday.
“A team from Sector 24 police station immediately reached the hospital and spoke to the parents of the child. During investigation, it was found that the couple- Tanveer and his wife Ishrat – lived in Khoda Colony in Ghaziabad. They originally hail from Bihar. Ishrat was admitted at ESI hospital on Tuesday for the delivery,” additional deputy commissioner of police Shakti Avasthy said.
After delivery, the woman was shifted to the ward and on Wednesday when the woman woke up, she found the boy missing.
“The child was not by her side, following which she raised an alarm. A search operation was launched and the staff were questioned. Our teams checked the footage of all the CCTV cameras installed on the hospital premises , which showed a woman walking out of the hospital premises carrying the newborn. The footage is of 4.30am,” Avasthy said.
The parents have submitted a police complaint, based on which an FIR has been registered under Section 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC. ” A case has been registered against the unknown woman. We are checking the footage from the CCTV cameras installed on the streets to know the movement of the woman. The motive behind the act would be clear after her arrest,” Avasthy said.
Sources told police that the accused woman had been seen roaming around the hospital from the past couple of weeks.
“The hospital doesn’t have any record of her, so it seems that she had been visiting the hospital with clear intentions of kidnapping a child,” a senior officer told TOI.
“CMO casualty got the information about the incident from the other wards around 6am following which the police was informed. If there is a lapse or involvement of staff, we would take necessary action against them,” said deputy medical superintendent Dr Sona Bedi.
