Mumbai, May 9: A three-day-old baby boy was allegedly taken away from a suburban hospital by a woman impersonating as a nurse, police said on Tuesday.
"A woman aged around 28 years dressed as a nurse entered the children's ward of the Sanjay Gandhi Municipal Hospital in Jogeshwari on Monday evening and took away the newborn boy," they said.
