Police still clueless about newborn  abducted from Jayanagar hospital

 The police are yet to trace the newborn that was abducted from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the government-run Jayanagar General Hospital in Jayanagar 4th Block on Friday.

“The police say that they are making all efforts and are optimistic of tracing my daughter shortly,” U J Thyagaraja, a cab driver from Bannerghatta, told DH on Sunday.
“We have decided to stay back at the hospital till my daughter is traced. I think many people from the hospital are involved in the abduction. I strongly suspect that my daughter has been given to some issueless couple. I suspect a racket,” he said.

Thyagaraja said his wife Sahanashree lost her mother when she was a child. She was trying to see her mother in the baby. The baby’s abduction has adversely affected her health, he added.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Dr M B Boralingaiah said that there was no information yet on the abducted baby. “We are making efforts to trace the child at the earliest,” he added.

The baby was born on January 29 and kept in the ICU as it was suffering from jaundice. On Friday, a man claiming to be a relative of the baby approached the nurse at ICU, and she gave the child to him. The stranger walked away with the baby immediately, the police said quoting the nurse Thippamma.
