kindly take pains to read this real story of a pending petition and suggest possible help for parents:
A poor mother gave birth to a male baby in government hospital on 23rd of November, 2009. On next day i.e. 24th November, "A", her sister in Law ( wife of her hausband's cusine ) took out the baby from the room to give sun bath. After some time she came back to the mother saying that an stranger took the baby in a loving gesture whom she did not suspected and gave the baby in good faith. But, the stranger ran away out of hospital campus taking the baby .
On the next day i.e. on 25th november, a new born baby was found in the arhar field in a nebouring village . People informed the police and a issueless person mr. X , a remote relative of parents through "A", appeared there to take care of and willing to adapt the baby. pollice handed over the baby to that person. The parents are saying that it is the same baby who was kidnapped from the hospital. Story of the police and the person who took custody of the baby is that it might have been an illegitimate baby of someone who abandoned the baby. It is notable here is no news of any other incident of missing of any other chiled on or arround that date.
On the claim and FIR of the parents, the police took the baby after 20 days from the X and handed over it to the orphonage . Now the chiled is in Shishu Sadan/ orphonage. Mr x is adamant to adapt the same baby with an argument that he nurchured the baby for 20 days. This is the version of parents alleging a planned conspiracy of "A" and "X" with collusion of local police and media, to snach the baby.
But, Police and Mr. "X" are saying that the baby was found on 22d i.e. a day before the said date of birth and not on 25th.
On petition by the parents the high court summoned the baby and called police report. The police reported that the baby was found on 22nd. At the time of argument, government advocate shown ( without affidavit and not on the record) a photo copy of a news item , published on 23rd November, with the the news of said recovery of baby in the field . The court said that if it is same baby who was born on 23rd how it's abandonment and recovery could be reported on the same day's news paper? The court has ordered for DNA test, cost of which will be boren by State and the petitioner in proportion of 50:50.
The poor parents are even unable to arrange for money for the DNA test. They are more than assured that it is their baby and in fact it was found in the field on 25th and not on 22nd . They are alleging that Mr X is a rich person and has manipuleted the police , the orphonage center and the media as well.
The case is beimng handled by a junior coleague at my table and it was not proper for me to interfere without a formal engagement/ offer. But I want to take this case on humanitarian grounds.
In what manner and how can we help the parents !!!
