LAHORE: The Garden Town police have failed to solve the kidnap of a four-month-old boy from Jinnah Hospital on May 6.
The police have issued the suspect’s Identikit, which has been pasted outside Jinnah Hospital with a Rs 5,000 cash reward offer for providing any clue to the kidnap.
Samina, wife of Muhammad Umer, of Sahiwal, handed over his four-month-old son Bilal to a stranger woman standing in the emergency ward who masqueraded as a hospital employee by virtue of pink dress she was wearing. The pink dress has been prescribed for ward attendants of the hospital.
Samina had come to the hospital to get his sons – 11-year-old Israr and four-year-old Abrar – examined. She was carrying her youngest son too.
Samina was waiting for her turn in the queue to get her children examined when a woman approached her, introduced herself as a resident of Sahiwal District – to which Samina also belonged – and ostensibly extended an helping hand by offering Samina that she would take care of the infant until she (Samina) gets free after the examination of her children.
Samina succumbed to the tactic and handed over the infant to the suspect and proceeded to get her children examined. On her return, Samina found the woman and Bilal missing.
The Garden Town police registered a kidnap case while the hospital administration also formed a committee to probe into the incident. However, no headway on both fronts has been made as yet.
Body: The decomposed body of an unidentified pre-teen boy was found in Kot Lakhpat police precincts on Saturday.
A police investigator said that some labourers spotted the body lying in an empty plot on Chandrai Road and informed the police. He said that the victim had apparently died four or five days ago after suffering fatal head injuries. The police sent the body for an autopsy and identification.
