In a fresh development in the battered baby case, the Delhi Police traced her six-year-old brother in the Capital on Tuesday evening. With this, the police have reunited the mother of the two-year-old toddler, fighting for life at AIIMS, with all her three children.

The police had earlier traced her mother from Jhunjhunu district in Rajasthan and found that she was forced into prostitution. "After tracing the mother, we managed to trace her second child in the first week of February. On Monday, we finally managed to trace her six-year-old son who is in Delhi," a senior police officer said, requesting anonymity.

The boy will be produced before the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) on Wednesday which will take a decision on his custody.

"Her mother is at Nari Niketan. We will allow her to meet her son on Wednesday. For his custody, she will have to file an application and the CWC will decide on it," the officer added.

However, the mother of the battered baby will undergo a DNA test to ascertain whether she is the biological mother of the child.

Her second child, a three-year-old girl, was traced from Muzaffarpur earlier.

"The boy who was traced on Tuesday is her eldest son. With this, we have completed the missing links," the officer added.
