The Panadura Magistrate took steps yesterday to temporarily hand over to a children’s home an infant girl born without hands as a result of her parents refusing to accept her.
This baby was born in the Kethumathi Hospital in Panadura a few days ago.
However as a result of the birth of the baby without hands the mother is suffering from trauma.
It is said that as a result of this the infant’s father had informed the hospital authorities that they could not accept the baby.
Accordingly the hospital authorities have informed the police explaining the situation.
Police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera told our news team that subsequently after reporting the matter to court action had been taken to hand over the infant to a children’s home.
