Dr. Shafqat fur­ther said that the grand­mother of the child had handed over the new­born to another woman who was in­tro­duced as ‘Phophi’ of the child.

The so-called Phophi of the child dis­ap­peared from the Peads Nurs­ery along with the baby and as soon as the un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent came into the no­tice of the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the hos­pi­tal, the Ad­min­is­tra­tion in­formed the lo­cal po­lice.

The Charge Nurse of the labour room handed over the baby to the grand­mother Ra­jan Bibi. Since the baby was pre­ma­ture, there­fore, doc­tors re­ferred the baby to peads nurs­ery along with call let­ter, the Ward Aya Tahira Bibi of labour room ac­com­pa­nied the grand­mother of the baby Ra­jan Bibi.

Dr. Shafqat said that this hand­ing over and shift­ing of the baby into Peads Nurs­ery has been doc­u­mented and recorded in CCTV to this ef­fect is avail­able. In Peads Nurs­ery ward, Ra­jan Bibi handed over the new­born baby to the ac­com­pa­nied woman who was in­tro­duced as ‘Phophi’ of the baby. Ra­jan bibi went to get emer­gency slip for ad­mis­sion, af­ter that the so-called Phophi also left the Peads Nurs­ery along with baby to bring the grand­mother back but she did not turn up.

Dr. Shafqat fur­ther said that af­ter some time, Ra­jan bibi came back and start­ing shout­ing that her new­born grand­son has been kid­napped by the so-called phophi. In his re­port sent to the Sec­re­tary Spe­cial­ized Health­care & Med­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion, Dr. Shafqat Ali said that as soon as the in­ci­dent came to his knowl­edge, with­out any de­lay he in­structed the of­fi­cials to im­me­di­ately in­form the po­lice, which they did at once. Now the lo­cal po­lice is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.
