Woman steals 2 month old baby in Islamabad
Hunt launched to trace accused
Islamabad, June 1: A two month old baby boy was stolen by an unknown woman after his mother handed him over to her at General Bus Stand here on Wednesday.
Reports and police sources said, Meema wife of Muhammad Ashraf Teli of Mehandpora village of Batpora Kulgam district had taken her baby, Yasir Ahmad to the Maternity and Pediatric hospital, Islamabad for medical check up. “In the hospital, I had an interaction with another woman, wearing traditional Kashmiri attire identifying herself as Gulshan of Aishmuqam and both of us decided to go together to the bus stand. Before we could board the bus to our respective destinations, I requested the lady to hold my baby for a while as I had to go to wash room,” eyewitnesses and police quoted Meema as saying.
They said minutes after Meema returned from the washroom, the woman had fled from the spot along with a baby. “As Meema did not find the lady, she raised hue and cry as many people gathered around and looked for the baby, but in vain,” eyewitnesses said.
Police has registered a case in this regard and started investigations.
When contacted SHO, Islamabad (Anantnag), Liyaqat Khan said, “After the police was informed about the theft, it sealed off all the entry and exit points of the town. But till now we have not been able to trace the woman and the baby. We have registered an FIR and investigations are on.”
He said some miscreants in order to disturb the law and order situation in the town had spread the rumor that the baby was picked up by a non-local woman.
