A newborn baby girl, abandoned in the corner of a street in Selaiyur, was rescued in the wee hours of Sunday. The baby, estimated to be five days old, was later admitted to the Institute of Child Health (ICH) in Egmore.

Police said the baby was rescued around 3 am on a street in Professors Colony following an alert from a call taxi driver, who reportedly found the infant crying near a board carrying the street name. The baby had no injuries and was found neatly wrapped in a sleeping bag.

“There is an ashram nearby. The baby could have been left there for the ashram to take care of,” a police official said.

After being provided first aid at the Government Hospital in Chromepet, the baby was shifted to the ICH, Egmore.
