Police search continues for Baby Falak's mother

New Delhi: Two-year-old Baby Falak who was found battered and abandoned, continues to be critical and has been put on the ventilator again by the doctors at AIIMS. As doctors perform surgery after surgery on the two-year-old, there are still no concrete leads to who the child's biological parents are.

The 2-year-old was on ventilator from Sunday night due to lung infection. With a CT scan showing fluids in her brain, the doctors went for a quick surgery. It's been almost 2 weeks since she was brought here battered and bruised.

Doctors have confirmed that she has an infection in the brain and in her chest as well. Doctors say that the toddler will remain on life support for some time. Meanwhile, the search for Falak's biological mother continues.

Chhaya Sharma, DCP South Delhi, said, "We have not yet arrested Lakshmi. But we are trying to find out more from her. We will take legal opinion if needed."

The Delhi police is exploring a new lead. A woman called Lakshmi, who is Rajkumar's relative, has alleged that someone identified as Munni is the baby's biological mother. Lakshmi is infact a relative of Rajkumar, the man who is believed to have handed over the baby to the teen who had brought Falak to AIIMS. She claims a person called Munni is the baby's real mother.
