A four-day-old boy was abducted from Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital here on Saturday.

Archana, a resident of Nihal Vihar, had delivered a baby boy at a government dispensary four days ago and was referred to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital. A woman came to her on Friday posing as a staff nurse and returned again on Saturday morning. Archana fell asleep while the woman was taking care of the child. When she got up a few hours later, she found the woman and her child were missing.

A case has been registered at the Hari Nagar police station. Archana’s husband Ambika Prasad is an auto-rickshaw driver.
