KOZHIKODE: A woman was arrested for abandoning her new born baby at the premises of the church. The Panniyankara police arrested the 21-year-old woman, an employee of Karipur Airport. Police said that soon after her delivery in Bengaluru Hospital, she reached Kozhikode.

She abandoned the baby in front of the mosque at Thiruvannur. Police said the baby’s father is also an employee of the airport. The baby was found abandoned on the mosque’s steps a few days back. The baby was wrapped in a blanket and with a note that alludes to the way she entered the world. “You should name the baby. You should care this baby thinking that Allah has given it to you. We are giving the baby back to Allah who gifted us. Should administer her BCG vaccine, polio vaccine and hepatitis B1.’

The baby was found lying on the part where slippers are kept near the steps of the mosque. When students left after madrassa in the morning at 6.45 am, the baby was not there. An auto carrying primary students of Islahiya School came at 8.30 am and they spotted the baby.

Women police and activists of child protection committee took over the baby. She was later taken to Koothuparambu district women’s child hospital. Doctors of the hospital said the baby weighing 2.7 kilos is healthy. The baby was delivered in a hospital as she had a tag on the umbilical cord.
