Srinagar: The authorities on Monday exhumed the body of a newborn to conduct DNA after a family from Budgam district alleged that they were given the body of a female baby instead of the male baby at JVC also known as SKIMS  Bemina.

An official said the body of the baby was exhumed today in order to conduct DNA sampling and match that with those of the family members.

“Since the family has levelled allegations against the hospital authorities for swapping their baby it was decided to exhume the body to conduct DNA so that truth shall come to the fore,” he said.
