>back to a mother’s lap from clutches of kidnappers

>AS if it was the way things ought to be. The eight-month-old baby girl fell from the clutch of her kidnappers and lost her right leg under the wheels of a running freight train, only to be saved later by a warm-hearted couple. 
The couple, residents of Atlanta, USA, will be leaving the country next week with their adopted daughter whom they call Ashima.
This is how Ashima’s amazing life story goes. On May 11 of 2006, two heroin addicts — Billal and Rahima — kidnapped her from Mymensingh and hopped on a Chittagong-bound freight train. (Full story)
With the baby in one of their cradles, the two addicts positioned themselves in between compartments of the train. 
When the train was about to reach Khanabari Rail Station in Narsinghdi, the baby suddenly fell off on the rail tracks.
A Good Samaritan happened to be near the spot at the right time, as if, he had come all the way from his workplace in Dubai not just to see his family, but to rescue the little girl from great danger. He rushed the critically injured baby to Narsingdi Hospital. 
The kidnappers, however, did not give up. They appeared at the hospital the next day to claim the baby. Thankfully, patients and their attendants at the hospital smelled something fishy with the two and handed them over to police. The addicts admitted kidnapping the baby, only saying that her mother’s name was Nazma.
