Days after stray dogs made a meal of a 3-day-old girl at Vanasthalipuram in Cyberabad police limits, police have come to conclusion that the baby was alive when she was abandoned near the bushes. It is suspected that the baby was abandoned because she was a girl.

Vanasthalipuram police sub-inspector K Prabhakar Rao said preliminary probe revealed that the baby girl was abandoned at the bushes alive. Doctors, who performed the postmortem, confirmed it and said the baby died only after being mauled by stray dogs.

Police took three persons into custody and grilled them but could not get any clue on the culprits.

Police suspect that some hospitals are not maintaining proper registers and are not collecting details of  women who delivered and their newborn babies. With little information coming from local nursing homes and hospitals, police decided to form a team and visit all the hospitals in the area and check for details.

“We just want to check the details of pregnant women who gave birth to baby girl in hospitals. There is a possibility that the mother, who gave birth to the infant in question, might have delivered in a hospital elsewhere in the city and the infant was abandoned in Vanasthalipuram which is on the city’s outskirts,’’ the sub-inspector said.
