Three newborns found near canal in Bengal

IANS  |  Kolkata 

Three newborn infants including a girl were rescued from beside a canal in West Bengal's South 24 Parganas district on Wednesday, police said.

"We recovered three babies from Harindanga village under Falta block in South 24 Parganas district. The babies were abandoned beside a village canal," an officer from Falta police station said.

"The kids have been admitted to Diamond Harbour hospital. We have not received any claims for the kids yet," he said.

The babies were rescued due to increased police vigil throughout the state to prevent child trafficking.

Ten newborns, about to be trafficked, were recovered from a Kolkata based old age home last week.

"It is too early to decide if the kids were victims of any trafficking activity. We are investigating the matter," Sunil Chowdhury, Superintendent of police, South 24 Parganas told IANS.
