New Delhi: As two-year-old baby Falak
continues to battle for her life, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) today offered to take care of her in the long run
and discussed the issue with Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

DCW chairperson Barkha Singh said the Commission would
like to offer all sorts of help to the toddler including her
brining up and education.
"We have discussed the whole issue with the Chief
Minister. We have conveyed to her that DCW would like to take
all care of the baby including her brining up and education,"
she said.

The baby, whose head was smashed and body has bite marks
all over, was brought to AIIMS by a teenaged girl who claimed
to be her mother but later turned out that she was not her
relative.

Singh said the baby could be kept at children home
`Nirmal Chhaya` or in `Palna`".
"There are so many people who want to adopt the child. We
can give her to them," she said adding Dikshit was willing to
pay the baby`s medical bills from the Chief Minister`s Relief
Fund.

Dikshit has already said that Delhi Government would
extend all possible care to the toddler.
