Staff Reporter :
The condition of the baby girl "declared dead at Dhaka Medical College Hospital early friday but found alive before burial hours later" has been fighting for life. She is under treatment at the Neonatal Intensive Care unit of the hospital.
"Her condition is very critical, we are trying our level best," Brigadier General AKM Nasir Uddin, director of the hospital, said to the Media on Saturday. A four-member probe body led by Dr Manisha Banerjee, Head of the Neonatology Department, has been formed to investigate the incident. The probe body has been asked to submit its report within three days.
"We will take action upon receiving the findings," the director said.
The baby's father Yeasin Mollah said, last night he saw the baby moving her limbs.
He sought blessing from all for his baby.
On Friday, a doctor at the hospital declared the baby dead after Yeasin's wife Shahinur Akter gave birth prematurely to her around 4:45am, after six and a half months' pregnancy.
Hospital staffers later put the baby in an abandoned box of gloves and asked Yeasin to take her to Azimpur graveyard, Yeasin, a driver by profession, alleged.
Yeasin took the baby to Rayerbazar graveyard; a grave was dug but a couple of minutes before the burial, the box in Yeasin's hand moved and she showed signs of being alive. He took the baby back to the hospital.
