Guwahati/ 16th May’2018 (Prag News Desk):
The recovery of a 2 month old baby from a deserted jungle near Duliajan Oil Colony has sparked a sensation in the locality.
The baby, Rishav Dutta was kidnapped a day ago from his quarter where the mother had laid her baby on the bed before getting busy with some errands. Seeing this as a probable chance, a miscreant broke into the quarter, colony B type, no 271 on Tuesday night and attempted to steal the two-month old infant lying on the bed.
In the meantime, the mother not finding her baby on the bed raised a hue and cry alerting the rest of the family and the neighbors about what had just happened. Seeing the condition of the crying mother, the family members and neighbors immediately started a search operation till late night, searching for the infant wherever possible.
After a long night search operation, the locals couldn’t trace the 2 month baby and thought it better to lodge a missing complaint at Duliajan police station.
Before the Police could take any action on the whole issue, a local recovered the baby abandoned in a deserted jungle near the Oil Colony. The infant was then quickly handed over to the mother.
Speaking over the incident, one of the locals stated. “The infant was found abandoned in a jungle. The baby has been handed over to the family and they’ve brought him for a medical checkup now.”
Although the baby has been safely recovered, the incident has created a fear psychosis among the residents of the locality.
