New Delhi, Feb.6 (ANI): Two women were arrested on Monday in connection with the Baby Falak abandonment case.
Delhi Police arrested Kanta and Lakshmi and also questioned Falak's mother Munni, who was traced down in Rajasthan's Jhunjunu District.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Chaya Sharma said: "We were able to track down the mother of Falak from a village in Jhunjunu district in Rajasthan. We had formed five teams to trace down the family of Falak. Lakshmi was identified earlier. It was important for us to trace down the original biological parents."
"The original biological mother was married off at the age of 16 and now she is 22 years old. The family life was very disturbed. The biological mother has accepted that Falak is her biological daughter. She was convinced that she would not be able to raise Falak on her own," she added.
She said that Kanta Chaudhry, Saroj and Lakshmi colluded and conspired together. Kanta Chaudhry belongs to Kotputli in Rajasthan.
Meanwhile, battered two-year-old Falak, has shown no signs of improvement, but is back on the ventilator at the trauma centre of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
"She is not breathing properly. That is why we had to put her back on the ventilator on February 4 night. The infection in her body and improper fluid movement are not allowing us to keep her off the ventilator. She is critical, but stable," Dr Deepak Agarwal, a neurosurgeon with the hospital, said.
Falak was brought to the AIIMS Trauma Centre on January 18 with severe head injury, both her arms broken, bite marks all over her body and her cheeks branded with hot iron.
Doctors have already conducted three life saving surgeries on her from the day of her admission here. More surgeries are required to be conducted but these have been kept on hold till the infection recedes, he said. (ANI)
