The Peradeniya police arrested the nurse who had abducted a seven- hour- old infant from the mother with the assistance of the staff of the Peradeniya hospital. The infant had been traced and handed over to the mother.

On Wednesday 17, Chamani Malkanthi Marasinghe of Galoya, Hindigala gave birth to her first child at Peradeniya hospital. After the child birth, the mother had fallen asleep and when she woke up the child was missing from the bed. She had complained to the ward staff and the hospital police post. Hospital Director Dr. C. Gunatillake after an inquiry into the incident gave the police relevant details and the suspected nurse who was alleged to have abducted the baby was arrested and questioned.

She had confessed that she had given the baby to one G.K. Ranjith Hemachandra of Thudugala. The police then had found the baby at Hemachandra’s house. Hemachandra was also taken into custody. Police inquiries have revealed that the nurse who abducted the baby is a resident of Kadugannawa and had served for 30 years as a nurse.

Both mother and the baby are at the Peradeniya hospital. The nurse and the other suspect who got the baby were to be produced in courts yesterday.
