After a normal delivery the underweight baby was shifted to Neonatal ICU of the hospital. On August 13, the “father” left saying he needed to withdraw money from bank and never returned. His mobile phone was found switched off. The woman also went missing from the cabin she was in. Photo: Prabir Das
