An unidentified woman stole a one-day-old baby boy from the general ward of Central Mumbai's B J Wadia Hospital late on Wednesday evening.
The baby boy, which was delivered at the hospital on Tuesday, went missing shortly after its mother, Jasmine Naik, stepped out of her ward for a short walk.
"This is the worst hospital and I can never forgive myself. It was a wrong decision to bring my wife here for the delivery", a television channel quoted Devdas Naik, the father of the baby, as saying.
Mumbai Police have released a sketch based on the description of an eyewitness present at the scene.
According to him, a dark complexioned woman aged around 25 and wearing an orange dotted saree, took the child away.
A case of kidnapping has been registered against an unknown woman.
