Excellent post that lays out the issue: essentially the story appears to be a complete fiction. I frankly don't have that much of a problem with biased reporting, since bias is inevitable, but when a "news" report is complete fiction that is clearly a problem (and it is a problem for the reporter when a Judge calls you out as making up facts...).

Unless additional information comes out, the NY Times pretty much has to fire the reporter. Even if the reporter was merely relying on reports in Sri Lanka that just doesn't seem like a good enough excuse (especially since the article doesn't say it is relying on other reports - it just mentions that daily narratives of the baby's story are in the local papers).

The original story is here.
