Angul: An abandoned new born baby girl was rescued by locals from an isolated area in Nabin Nagar of Talcher on Tuesday.
The infant was rescued when a few villagers heard the faint cry of a child from a garbage dump. On following the sound, they found the baby girl.
Local police and ASHA workers were informed, who immediately rushed to the spot. The baby, being in a very critical state, was rushed to Talcher Community Health Centre. District Child Protection Unit and Child Welfare Committee were also intimated of the development.
Since the infant’s condition kept worsening, she was shifted to Sick Newborn Care Unit (SNCU) of District Headquarter Hospital. Meanwhile, cops are further probing into the matter to ascertain who abandoned the girl in the garbage dump.
