Bhubaneswar: In a deplorable incident, a newborn baby boy was found dumped in a garbage heap in the capital city of Bhubaneswar at New Colony near Sainik School. According to sources, a sweeper heard the muffled cries of the baby and found it in a bag, wrapped up in a cloth.

He immediately brought this into notice to the locals of the area, who right away called the PCR van which admitted the child in the nearby Apollo Hospital. The condition of the child is stated to be critical and is now undergoing treatment in ICU.

Talking to OMMCOM NEWS, Benudhar Senapati CWC member informed, “The CWC received information that a new born baby with its umbilical cord was found in a garbage heap. By that time the PCR van had already got the child admitted to the hospital.

We immediately directed the Child Line to attend to the child. The hospital authorities were demanding Rs 75,000 for its treatment but we directed the hospital to provide the child free treatment till it is stable.

“Once the baby is stable, he will be shifted to Capital Hospital. Till then the Child Line is taking the full responsibility of the baby,” informed the CWC member.

The baby has contracted infection and is now in a very critical condition.

Notably, the CWC is holding discussion and will soon report the case to the police to know the identity of the baby, after which there will be proper investigation.
