Kerala Child Rights Commission Registers Case After Newborn Found Dead in Plastic Bag

The Kerala State Child Rights Commission took action on Friday following the discovery of a deceased newborn, wrapped in a plastic bag, in a prestigious residential area.

K.V Manoj Kumar, Chairperson of the Kerala State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, visited the Panampilly Nagar locality where the incident transpired.

He instructed the city police commissioner to furnish a comprehensive report on the matter.

Expressing grave concern, the Commission emphasized that abandoning or harming children should never be considered an option, urging the utilization of government facilities like Ammathottil or Children’s Homes for their protection and welfare. Ammathottil, overseen by the Kerala State Council for Child Welfare, aims to provide a nurturing environment for destitute and abandoned children.

Earlier, workers from the Kochi Corporation discovered the infant’s body and promptly alerted the authorities.

A subsequent police investigation led to the detention of a 23-year-old woman, identified through an Amazon delivery packet used to wrap the child.

The woman, suspected of being a victim of sexual assault, reportedly delivered the baby in her apartment bathroom before allegedly discarding the newborn outside her residential complex, concealing her pregnancy from her parents.
