Balasore: An abandoned girl child was rescued from roadside in Mahisapata panchayat under Nilagiri police limits on Wednesday night.
As per reports, one Arati Singh heard a baby's cries in the night and when she traced the sound, she found a girl lying abandoned on the roadside in front of her house. She gathered the locals and they rushed the baby to the District Headquarters Hospital.
On intimation, cops and Childine officials reached the spot and took custody of the child.
Such situations reveal the harsh reality of Indian society that still prefers a son over a girlchild.
