Taking serious note of plight of two-year-old baby Falak, the union home ministry today sought a report from the Delhi Police and termed it as a case of human trafficking.


"It is a case of human trafficking. We are seeking report from the Delhi Police," Additional Secretary in the home ministry B Bhamathi told reporters in New Delhi.

Bhamathi said the Delhi Police was probing the case to find out the people responsible for the pathetic condition of the baby.

"They are investigating. If anyone found guilty, action will be taken," she said.

Falak was brought to the AIIMS Trauma Centre on January 18 with severe head injury, both her arms broken, bite marks all over her body and her cheeks branded with hot iron.

Immediately after her admission, doctors conducted a life saving surgery on her brain and another two were undertaken at a later date. Doctors said that she needs to undergo more such surgeries but they have been put on hold as infection level in her blood has not receded.
