Abandoned Newborn Rescued
A day after an abandoned baby girl was bitten by dogs in the grounds of Acharya Institute of Health Sciences and Nursing in Hebbal, another newborn baby girl, abandoned in the corner of a street, was rescued early on Saturday at Chikkagowdanaplaya, near a welding shop in Kumarswamy Layout.
The baby, suspected to be a day old, was later handed-over to BOSCO Childcare and Rehabilitation Centre.
Police said the baby was rescued at around 6.30 am, after an old woman heard her crying.
She alerted the neighbours and cared for the baby for sometime. The baby was handed over to the BOSCO Childcare and Rehabilitation Centre after being administered first aid in a nearby hospital. The baby had no injuries, and was found neatly wrapped in night wear. It is suspected that the baby was left in the early morning.
Kumarswamy Layout police registered a case and an investigation is ongoing.
