Police sources say that a family living in a makeshift shanty along the Jogajog Bhavan became aware of the theft when dawn broke on Monday. They have lodged a complaint with the Bowbazar Police Station.

Last week, the similar case of a new born being taken away on the pretext of vaccination led to the ban of ‘Ayaraj’ or the special attendant system in the Medical college. The baby was traced back in four days. However, state government intervened and security was beefed up across all hospitals.
