HYDERABAD: The Regional Passport Office, Secunderabad was in for a shock when an American woman, upset over delay in issuing a passport to her adopted child, allegedly abandoned the child and left.

She was, however, called back later and the baby handed to her.

According to sources, the US national Van Dheeran (40) had adopted a twomonth old baby from the city a few months ago and applied for passport for her.

Regional passport officer K Srikar Reddy said the woman had approached them on Friday.

“Our staff started an inquiry into the application and also sent it for police inquiry.

With the applicant an American national and her husband a Jamaican, we have to do a thorough inquiry before issuing a passport,” he said.
