16-day old newborn baby stolen from Government hospital in Khammam

A 16-day-old newborn baby girl stolen from a government hospital in Telangana's Khammam. An unidentified woman came into the hospital and asked the mother to give the baby to her so that she could feed her.
Ramadevi said she had gone to the washroom, leaving the child with the maternal grandmother. “But as I came out of the washroom, I saw an unknown woman giving milk to my baby, who was crying. Minutes later, the woman took my baby to the ground floor, saying she has to given injection, and then fled with the child.”
The parents and relatives started searching for the baby in and around the hospital premises, but to no avail. The family then reached out to the Resident Medical Officer who was on duty at the time of the incident. The RMO then alerted the police. CCTV footage from the hospital shows a woman walking away from one of the halls of the mother-child healthcare section.
Earlier, in May, an eight-day-old infant, who had gone missing from the government general hospital in Sangareddy, traced in Yellareddy town, which located in neighboring Kamareddy.
