A three-year-old girl, who had got separated from her mother on Saturday at a hospital here, was reunited with her after two days by the efforts of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW). The girl had accompanied her mother to G B Pant hospital and got separated from her mother while playing on its premises, a DCW official said. The girl was found by the staff of the hospital who tried searching for her mother in the hospital but when they couldn't trace her they contacted the DCW for assistance. The DCW team reached the hospital and made announcements at the hospital and a nearby mosque in order to search for her mother but was unable to find her. The team then took the girl to the I P Estate police station and got a missing report registered, the official said. Meanwhile, the mother, while searching for her daughter, reached the same police station where the DCW team had registered a missing complaint in the evening. The police then called the DCW team to the police station who reached the station with the girl without delay. Although the girl recognised her mother, she was not handed over to her as she had no identity proof, the official said. The woman explained that she had been staying at the hospital for the past one week for her sister's treatment.
She said everyone in the hospital could identify that she was the little girl's mother. The official said that the DCW team took the little girl and her mother to the hospital along with a team of the police. The guard at the hospital and a nurse were able to identify the woman as the girl's mother. Next day the woman brought her identity card to the Child Welfare Committee where DCW had kept the little girl. The CWC after checking the identity of the mother handed over the girl to her mother, the official added.
