Sonari: A sensational incident came to the light where a newborn baby was found dead near a bridge over the Taukak river. The incident took place in Sonari on Thursday.
As per reports, locals suspect that the mother of the child has thrown it under the bridge. It may be because the mother was unmarried and in this case, she could not keep the child with her or even take care of him.
Meanwhile, some locals also alleged that the incident may be a result of immoral activities that are reported over time. The delivery might have been carried out in a local hospital or medical center and later taking advantage of the night, the mother left the child under this bridge to die.
According to a police official, the locals who recovered the dead body of the newborn have reported the incident to the police and further while an investigation is going on.
