MADURAI: The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court has transferred the missing case of a baby aged one to the Crime Branch of the Crime Investigation Department (CB-CID). The State police department had failed to make any headway in solving the case for more than six months.

The court, while passing the order, cited a memorandum issued by the Director General of Police that if a child missing case could not be solved in four months, it would be transferred to the CB-CID.

In her petition, B Jeyanthi of Thoothukudi district said the missing baby was her granddaughter and she was looking after her. Earlier this year, the baby’s mother Suganya took the one-year-old to Velankanni in Nagapattinam. On February 11, the infant went missing and they lodged a complaint with Thoothukudi South Police. But there was no progress in the case so far. Hence she sought the court’s intervention.

When the plea came up, a government advocate appearing for police said the case was transferred to the Velankanni Police Station, adding that they could not trace the child. The Bench then transferred the case to the CB-CID.
