Srinagar, Feb 8: A newborn girl was abandoned at Kashmir's lone childcare specialty GB Pant hospital on Friday.
Medical Superintendent GB Pant hospital, Dr Muneer Masoodi said that the baby was admitted in the hospital today after a woman brought her for treatment.
“The woman had provided her address, but on verification it turned out to be fake. We have informed the police,” Dr Masoodi said.
Doctors at the hospital said that umbilical cord of the baby girl was found loosely tied. “The baby was bleeding at the time of her admission. After some time, we found that the woman had left the hospital. We tried to contact the woman at her address and cell number but could not locate her whereabouts,” they said.
“Abandoning babies is becoming a big issue now. We would ensure to photograph suspicious persons coming to the hospital with babies for admission,” Dr Masoodi said.
The records available with the hospital reveals that this is the fifth case since January this year.
Dr Masoodi said those who want to adopt these abandoned children have to get requisite adoption orders from court.
“We submit status report on abandoned babies to the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Srinagar and wait for its orders. Any family which comes with the adoption orders from the court, would be handed over abandoned baby”, he said.
