The Government Railway Police (GRP) have released the sketch of a woman who stole 10-month-old Sagar Mahat alias Babu from the waiting hall of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in the wee hours of Wednesday.
They said the woman was wearing a red sari and is aged between 28 and 32 years. She is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and is dark-skinned.
Ranjana Mahat, Sagar’s grandmother, was at CST waiting for a train to Uttar Pradesh. She and Sagar were in the waiting room.
The police said while Mahat was asleep, an unidentified woman, who was sleeping next to Sagar, picked him up and walked away with him. When Mahat woke up, she raised an alarm, following which other commuters told her a woman wearing a red sari had left with the baby.
Mahat, who lives at Naigaon, hawks utensils for a living. The baby was with her after his father had asked Mahat to take care of him as his wife had left him.
Surendranath Deshmukh, senior inspector of CST GRP, said, “The incident came to light around 3.55 am, when Mahat woke up and failed to find the baby. After scanning the station, we registered a case of kidnapping.”
