A newborn baby girl was found abandoned near Yelahanka's GKVK road in Bengaluru. Nagendran, a civil defence volunteer, who rescued the infant, said that a tea seller in the locality had first noticed the baby left behind by their family members. She was found wrapped in a piece of cloth near a bush.

As Nagendran received the information, he swiftly contacted the Yelahanka police and called an ambulance. The infant was shifted to the Yelahanka government hospital for medical treatment.

The infant's health was stable and she was later shifted to Victoria hospital. The baby will be moved to the government children's home. The Yelahanka police have registered a complaint based on the information provided by a resident there.

The police officials suspect that the parents may have abandoned the infant since she was a girl child. The police also said that they are on the lookout for the parents and would arrest them for their "insensitive act". The civil defence volunteers also alleged that it's the third time such an incident is taking place in the locality in the past two years.
