Police have detained the mother of a seven month-old male infant who sustained a chop on his right leg.
The baby who was identified by the name Ganesh, of Lusignan Pasture, East Coast Demerara, was admitted as a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital about 01:45 hours yesterday.
A release from the hospital informed that the child sustained the wound during an altercation between his parents.
However, the mother who was detained hours after the incident, was reported to have given police a conflicting statement of what led to the child’s injuries.
She claimed that a man entered the house and tried to rob her and inflicted the wound on the child.
However investigators do not believe her story.
Reports reaching this newspaper indicated that the child’s grandmother, who lives in another house in the same yard, heard her daughter-in-law screaming.
The elderly woman said that since it was dark she was afraid to go out.
Minutes later her daughter came over to her house and handed the baby to her. She said that upon checking she observed that the baby was bleeding profusely.
The child was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was immediately admitted.
Investigators are convinced that the woman is not telling the truth about what happened.
She insisted yesterday that the child’s father was not at home when the baby received injuries.
However, up to late yesterday he had not reported to the police, who are interested in interviewing him.
Police later received information that the child’s mother had tried to kill the baby at birth.
According to a source, the disclosure was made by a woman who was a fellow patient at the Maternity Ward of the Georgetown Public Hospital along with the injured child’s mother.
The source said that investigators are getting no cooperation from the baby’s mother since she appeared to be under the influence of alcohol even up to late yesterday afternoon.
