The police officials have ordered the surrogate mother to undergo a DNA test along with the child that was allegedly sold off to a Mumbai couple illegally by a Ahmedabad-based doctor and his staff.
A day earlier, the DCB officials had lodged an FIR against Dr Bharat Atit, the gynecologist husband of former Ahmedabad mayor Malini Atit, in this connection. The woman, whose child was sold off, had reportedly delivered the baby at his clinic.
The DCB officials said the Ahmedabad doctors would conduct a DNA test on the woman to prove whether she is the mother.
A DCB official said, "The DNA test will be also conducted on the child when we can find it. After selling off the baby in Mumbai, the location couldn't be traced. We are also identifying others who are suspected to have connection in this case."
A DCB teams have camped in Mumbai to identify the couple on the basis of the information provided by one Neeru, the doctor's employee.
Doctor seeks anticipatory bail
