Showcasing the prejudiced mindset of society once again,a couple abandoned their one and a half year old girl child at the Civil hospital here.
The couple seemingly from a well to do family,left their girl with an old lady sitting at the compound of Civil Hospital,yesterday.
When the couple did not turn up to take their baby back,the lady informed the hospital authorities who took custody of the child and intimated police.
According to Principal Medical Officer at the Civil Hospital,Dr Asrudin,nurses at the government hospital are looking after the girl child who is absolutely hale and hearty and has no bruises or wound marks on her body.
She is also not suffering from any ailment as per the medical legal report (MLR),done by the doctors. It seems,the couple had abandoned their girl child,as they might have wished for a male child,they said.
On the basis of the report by the Civil Hospital,the police have lodged an FIR against the unknown couple and have started searching for them.
The old lady informed police that the couple who left the child belongs to a well-to-do family. The child’s mother,told the old lady that she was going to buy medicines for the child,while after few minutes,the father told her that he was going to fetch his car. But the couple did not come back to take the child,even after one hour.
Though,it will be difficult to trace the couple,the police would try hard to find them,said Dr Abhai Rao,Deputy Commissioner of Police (West).
