NEW DELHI: As the 2-year-old Falak continues to battle for her life, the father of the teenager who brought Falak to AIIMS now wants to take the 15-year-old back, who is now in a children's home. But Delhi Women's Commission has stepped in and says that looking at the father's past they will oppose his custody demand. The Delhi Women's Commission also says that the teenager has been abused too.

The toddler who was severely abused has now spent more than two days off the ventilator. The doctors say that the infections are the biggest worry.

The police sources has told CNN-IBN that they have pieced together the chain of events that led to the baby being battered.

On June the 15-year-old girl ran away from her father’s home alleging abuse. The father, a vegetable vendor, had then filed a missing persons report.

The girl then lived with her aunt for 2 months, but ran away from there as well to live with Raj Kumar, a taxi driver, who has a wife and children of his own in Mumbai.

Raj Kumar then reportedly took custody of Falak from a friend of his and left the baby in the girl's custody around new year's day.

Police sources say, the girl abandoned by Raj Kumar and having to care for the baby battered the toddler in a fit of rage. Days later on January 18 she brought her to the AIIMS trauma centre.

Raj Kumar is now absconding and Delhi police has despatched teams to Mumbai to catch him. The police sources told CNN-IBN that the biological mother of Falak can only be traced once they nab Rajkumar who holds the key to the mystery.
