Sambalpur hospital newborn theft: Authorities dismiss 2 security guards

Sambalpur: Two days after a newborn child was stolen from Sadar hospital here, two security guards were dismissed by the hospital authorities for negligence in duty.

On the other hand the hospital authorities are still unable to know the whereabouts of the child. The movements of a suspected woman captured in the CCTV camera of the hospital raises doubt that she may be the culprit. But police, clueless about the suspected woman and the stolen child, is continuing its investigation with just a photo of the woman taken from the CCTV footage.

It may be mentioned that, Gitanjali of Amlipani village under Jujumora block of Sambalpur district had given birth to a baby boy at about 12 noon in this hospital on March 23.  However, her newborn son was allegedly stolen away from the hospital late that night.
