Another newborn recovered in Bengal

IANS  |  Kolkata 

A newborn baby was rescued from an open field in West Bengal's Burdwan district, police said on Thursday.

"A baby boy aged between 10-12 days was rescued from Ulara village in Burdwan district's Memari on Wednesday evening. The kid was lying deserted at the corner of a village field," said an officer from Memari police station.

"We haven't received any claims for the child's custody yet," he added.

A villager first heard the child's cry and informed Memari police station and the child helpline on Wednesday evening.

"The newborn is kept at the local child home in Memari," police said.

The incident came into light amid increased police vigil throughout the state to prevent child trafficking. Three children including a baby girl were recovered on Wednesday from South 24 Parganas, while 10 more newborn girls were recovered from a Kolkata-based old age home last week when child smuggling racket was busted.
