Youth, father of 3 sons, held for abandoning newborn girl in church

Posted on : Saturday 2nd of June 2018

Kochi: A youth here was arrested by the Elamakkara police on Saturday for abandoning his newborn girl before the confessional chamber of a church.

The two-day old's parents were traced from Wadakancherry in Thrissur Saturday morning, the police said. The father of the baby will be charged under various sections of IPC and Juvenile Justice Act, police said.

CCTV footage aired by television channels and circulated on social media showed a couple leaving the child in the premises of St George Forane Church Friday evening. The security staff of the church found the child at around 8.30 pm and immediately alerted the police. In the CCTV footage, the couple along with another child, is seen walking into the church premises around 8.15 pm with the baby wrapped in an orange sheet.

The father kisses the baby on its forehead before carefully placing on the ground of the church.

The baby was admitted to a private hospital immediately after the incident. Hospital sources said the infant was healthy.

The couple already has three sons, aged eight, six and three. The couple told the police that they took the extreme step due to financial distress and fear of society. Police said the exact reason for the couple to take such a step would be known only after a detailed interrogation of the father.
