Hundreds ready to take home baby girl abandoned in UP garbage binNazar Abbas TNN
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. We all are hoping and praying that her parents are found and she goes back home,” said Mehraj Hussain, a resident of Bhikanpur-Kulwada village.
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.”
