Newborn stolen from hospital

A three-day-old newborn boy was stolen from Midford Hospital in the city yesterday.
The mother Salma Begum, 25, a resident of Dhupkhola in the city's Gendaria, told The Daily Star that she was admitted to the hospital's labour ward and gave birth on Saturday.
Salma said her mother Khodeza Begum took the baby for vaccination to the hospital's outdoor section around 1:00pm yesterday.
A burqa-clad (a garment covering the entire body) woman offered to hold the baby while Khodeza bought the ticket for vaccination. When Khodeza finished buying the ticket, she could not find the woman, said Salma.
Officer-in-Charge Md Salauddin Khan of Kotwali Police Station said the hospital authorities informed police and they are conducting an investigation.
