SRINAGAR, MARCH 14: A 20-day-old girl with Down’s syndrome was abandoned by her mother in Ward-2 of the hospital on Saturday. A woman in veil had entered the hospital on Saturday afternoon and kept the baby girl on a bed.
Three weeks ago, another month-old-baby boy was abandoned at a shrine in the old city Srinagar.
The hospital administration has requested NGOs and civil society groups to come forward and help in adopting the abandoned babies.
“We have been appealing people for help for adoption or personalised care of these babies. Unfortunately, no one came forward,” said Dr Khan.
