The baby has been rescued and is currently undergoing treatment at a local hospital. The district’s Chief Medical Officer said that the newborn is in a critical condition. “We are hopeful of her recovery,” he said.
On Sunday, a similar incident came to light from Kerala where a couple abandoned their five-day old baby, allegedly out of fear that they would be shamed socially for having a fourth child. The couple was later arrested.
