New Delhi :  

A new-born baby girl, who was delivered in a toilet in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh, was found alive after two hours of birth on Independence Day. The doctors and police are bewildered on the survival of girl child.

After being found in a toilet, the baby girl was immediately rushed to the neonatal ICU of a hospital in Sheopur. The girl is said to be stable in hospital.

"The police along with the women and child development department have begun a probe to figure out whether there was something malafide behind the incident," the SP of Sheopur Shiv Dayal told New Indian Express on Friday.

As per reports, a 28-year-old woman named Papita Gurjar came out of toilet complaining acute abdominal pain to Ghanshyam Gurjar on Tuesday.

The husband immediately took her to community health center (CHC) in Vijaypur area and informed doctors that the woman was pregnant. The doctors took her to operation theatre to find out that there was no baby.

The doctors said that the baby might have been delivered in the toilet itself.

The hospital staff then rushed to the toilet. After entering inside the toilet, they heard the baby cry.

After the examination of baby at the neonatal unit of hospital, doctors found that the baby’s umbilical cord had been cut.

After the suspicion on the development, the doctors informed the matter to Police. Police is now investigating the matter.
