Mahila Manch to intensify agitation after Diwali

india Updated: Oct 21, 2006 00:26 IST

MEMBERS OF the Mahila Manch have threatened to intensify their agitation against the Upper India Sugar Exchange Hospital authorities. They alleged intentional delay on the part of the hospital authorities to recover the stolen child.

The Manch leaders have also approached the Women Commission, Human Rights Commission and the State Chief Minister for necessary action to recover the stolen baby.

According to general secretary of the Manch Neelam Chaturvedi, “The agitation has been suspended due to Diwali and Eid. But soon after the festivals, we would take up the matter on a war footing to ensure justice.” She also urged the Amnesty International to take up the issue with the State Government.

Santosh, wife of Rajesh Singh, a resident of village Jamu in Bidhnu, had delivered a male baby last week. The child reportedly went missing the next morning.

In their application to the IG police, the family members of the baby said that at the time of the incident the newborn was with his mother Santosh. The hospital staff on duty included nurse Anita Joseph, ward boy Jugal Kishore, maid servant Sarbati, sweeper Najjo, and Liquait.

Shravan Singh, father-in-law of Santosh, has threatened to initiate legal proceeding against the erring hospital authorities.
