After a ten-days search for a baby which went missing from the Raja Sir Ramaswamy Mudaliar (RSRM) hospital, the police have released sketches of the three suspects in the case.
On September 15, a young woman who was pretending to be pregnant, with a young boy and a man stole the child from the baby's parents, Indrani and Manikandan.
The couple, who hail from the Washermanpet area, came to the hospital to get information about the maternity welfare assistance programme for their new born girl child and the vaccination details. The alleged culprits, requested the couple to take their boy to a nearby eatery. Manikandan agreed to their request as the other man said that he was new to the city.
While Manikandan was out with the boy, in an act to help Indrani, the childâ€™s mother offered to take care of the child so that she can go and collect details about the scheme. By the time both Manikandan and Indrani returned, the young man and the woman had vanished with the baby.
The hospital has a total of 27 security cameras but not even one camera at the hospital main entrance. Investigating officer told The Times of India, â€œWe believe they are from another state because they spoke broken Tamil. We have pasted pictures of the child and the three suspects on autorickshaws, in bus stands, railway stations and other public places.â€œ
