Baby abandonment continues to be a huge issue in Malaysia, where innocent babies who were just brought into the world are left to fend on their own after being born.

A trader who ran a chicken shop in Terengganu was shocked to stumble upon a newborn baby girl lying on the ground with the umbilical cord still attached.

“We are currently looking for the suspects who abandoned the child and the case is now being investigated under Section 317 of the Penal Code for concealing a birth,” he said during a press conference at the Operations Control Center in Balai Polis Air Putih.

He added that police have contacted both public and private clinics in the district and called upon them to inform police if they encounter any patient who had recently given birth.

We hope the baby will grow up healthily and find a loving home soon!
