A woman, Priyanka, gave birth to a baby boy four days ago. Around 5 am on Monday, the rats nibbled at the boy's fingers.
There was no light in the ward when the rats were nibbling the baby's fingers and the family members saw it only after the lights came on. They then lodged a complaint with the hospital authorities.
In another incident, a baby girl, hours after her birth, was left to die in a public toilet, allegedly by her mother in Mumbai's Kanjurmarg suburb.
