In a heart-rending incident, some unidentified persons abandoned a newborn baby in North Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
Local sources said that few people found the abandoned baby near a local nallah called Hud in the Kralpora area of Kupwara. They quickly arranged clothes for the baby and wrapped it in a warm blanket.
The baby was taken to the District Hospital Handwara for treatment.
Medical Superintendent District Hospital Handwara Dr Nisar Ahmed Wani told news agency Kashmir News Trust that it was a baby boy who died within 15 minutes in the hospital.
“We informed the police about the incident,” he said.
Police sources said that a case has been registered under relevant sections of law and a team has been constituted to nab the culprits. [KNT]
