“The anonymous caller rang me up on Monday afternoon and again on Tuesday morning. Later, I got some clues to his identity through Truecaller. He told me that he identified the abandoned baby after watching news reports and knows her father and mother who used to be his good friends. The caller said that the couple used to often fight with each other after the man refused to accept the baby as his daughter,” the orphanage incharge said.
The superintendent has forwarded all details about the anonymous caller to the child welfare committee (CWC), Moradabad. According to the sources, the caller has also provided the numbers of the couple.
According to the orphanage superintendent, the person who had called him up had told him that he is a resident of Haldwani in Nainital and works in Dehradun.
Gulzar Ahmad, president of Moradabad CWC, said, “We have received the information from the orphanage superintendent. We hope her parents will soon be traced with the help of police.”

The abandoned child’s pictures were published in most newspapers and her story was widely circulated on social media.

Rampur: After seeing pictures of an adorable sixmonth-old abandoned baby girl, who was found in a garbage bin on Moradabad-Agra highway on Friday morning, hundreds of couples on Saturday approached police and the child welfare committee with requests for adoption. The abandoned child’s pictures were published in most newspapers.
On Saturday morning, scores of couples queued up outside the office of child welfare committee in Moradabad. These included residents of Bhikanpur-Kulwada who had spotted and rescued the baby a day earlier.
“The woman who first spotted the child and fetched milk for her has been missing her terribly. She even went to the local police station to check on the baby girl.

Officials said that for now, the child has been sent to the state-run orphanage in Rampur. A CWC member, Vincent Ram said, “The baby’s adoption will be allowed after two years if her real parents are not found.”
