Newborn girl found dead in dustbin outside Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital

Being born in a Caesarean section negatively affects a baby's ability to focus on a particular area of interest, says a new study.

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: The body of a newborn was found on Monday in a dustbin near the mortuary of Safdarjung Hospital in South Delhi. Investigations have revealed that the girl child was stillborn and was dumped by her parents because they were not sure what to do with it.

The parents told the police that they were poor and could not afford to carry out the funeral rites of the child. A senior officer said that a passerby spotted the body and made a call to the police control room in the morning, informing the cops that he has spotted a newborn girl lying dead in a dustbin behind the hospital’s mortuary.
