Kerala baby missing case: Anupama to stage indefinite hunger strike from Saturday
Thiruvananthapuram: Hours after the Kerala state government ordered a probe into the incident in which a baby went missing from Thiruvananthapuram, the mother who raised the complaint has announced that she will stage an indefinite hunger strike from Saturday.
Anupama will stage a sit-in at the office of Kerala Women’s Commission. Earlier on the day, the birth certificate of the missing baby came out. The father’s name and address were wrongly entered in it.
Instead of Ajith, husband of Anupama, the name Jayakumar is seen entered as father’s name in the certificate. Ajith is a resident of Kuravankonam in Kavadiyar. However, father’s address is given as Manakkad, Thiruvananthapuram, in the certificate.
With this, sources in the investigation team have said there were deliberate attempts to snatch the baby from Anupama.
Anupama gave birth to the male baby on October 19 at a private hospital in Kattakkada. It was on the basis of the details given at the hospital, Kattakkada Grama Panchayat issued birth certificate.
The certificate, however, clearly mentions the name Anupama S Chandran as the mother of the baby.
Anupama S Chandran, a former member of SFI and the daughter of a Peroorkada CPI-M area committee member Jayachandran, came up with the allegations against her family members a few days back.
Anupama had fallen in love with DYFI Peroorkada area president Ajith who was already married. Anupama's parents were not happy over this alliance. Anupama and Ajith could not start living together as he was not legally divorced at that time.
Meanwhile, Anupama gave birth to a baby on October 19 last year. According to Anupama’s complaint, the child was taken away from her by her father and relatives three days after the delivery. They had promised that the baby will be brought back once Anupama’s sister is married off. However, they did not bring the child back even after her sister’s wedding.
