<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday alleged that the Delhi police, at the behest of the Centre, was consistently implicating its MLAs in “false” cases. The latest charge was the molestation case against AAP’s Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal.”In complete violation of procedure and norms, the Delhi police filed a case against Jarwal under Section 354. After the court quashed the complaint on Thursday, it has reinforced the fact that the Delhi Police is being misused by its political masters to sully the image of AAP,” senior party leader Atishi Marlena said.”And, this is not the first time this has happened to one of our MLAs; in fact this has happened several times in the past,” she added.On July 22, a case was registered against Jarwal for allegedly molesting a 53-year-old woman in southeast Delhi’s Sangam Vihar. It was the second such case since June 2016 against the lawmaker.”Now that the court has quashed the complaint against Jarwal, who will compensate for the psychological ordeal he and his family had to suffer? Is the regime of vendetta politics being played out against AAP and its MLAs ethical?” Marlena asked. “The party will not bend its knees before such an onslaught against its MLAs under any circumstances,” she added.The Delhi police arrested as many as 13 AAP legislators in the last two years on different charges, but all of them are out on bail due to lack of evidence against them.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A couple has alleged that doctors at Safdarjung hospital exchanged their baby boy with a girl on Friday. The mother further alleged that the doctors at the hospital inserted an intrauterine device — used to prevent pregnancy — without taking her permission. A complaint has been filed with the Police.The couple, residing in Khanpur area, had come to the hospital on Wednesday evening and the mother gave birth to a girl on Thursday afternoon.“After I gave birth, the doctors and nurses asked me to see my child. I saw and told them that I have given birth to a boy. They agreed and went inside. After few minutes, they came back with a girl and insisted that I have given birth to a girl and not a boy,” said Sonia, who is still in a state of shock.When she resisted, the nurses began to beat her and asked her to keep quiet. The couple then decided to raise the matter. “He was our first child. My wife is very sure of what she saw. Also, without taking her permission, how can they insert Copper-T in her body? It is illegal,” said Bhupinder, her husband who owns a stationery shop in Sangam Vihar.The hospital has ordered an inquiry. “We have received the complaint and ordered an inquiry,” said Dr AK Rai, medical superintendent, Safdarjung hospital.The young couple who waited for four years for their child is not ready to accept the wrong baby. “They have returned the child to the hospital’s nursery but have not got back their own son. We are trying to help them,” said Krishna Bansal from Navasrishti NGO. In the pastIn January, a couple expecting twins was told that they were blessed with a baby girl and was handed over the single child. The woman’s husband however claimed that a nurse informed them that their second baby would have “been dumped in the garbage.”AnalysisThe lack of effective measures to safeguard patients’ rights whether it is the right medicine, signing consent forms to carry out operative measures or safeguarding newborns is high. As a result, patient distrust for hospitals is high and allegations of baby swapping remain a cause for concern

Police began searching for Rajan and the police team came to know that he had changed three houses in Sangam Vihar in the last one week, which further strengthened the suspicion on him, he added. Police also learnt that the three accused used to go to Ghaziabad at night to sleep. “Police teams had started collecting information about Rajan and his associates. Several teams were constituted under the supervision of inspector Ved Prakash SHO (Kalkaji) and under the overall supervision of Amit Goel, ACP (Kalkaji),” said Baaniya.

The jhuggis were removed in the year 2005-06 and they along with their family shifted to Sangam Vihar. But they continued working in the same locality as labourers or painters.

They had bent the iron shed to make a passage to go through the vacant land. They had jumped off from gate number 8 of the apartments that is closed during the night and is open during daytime.
