Infant thrown into Bareilly pond kept alive by hyacinth flower rescued by news from villagers
Upon information, the police first took the girl to the community health center, from where she was referred to the district hospital. The elder Pradhan’s family expressed their desire to adopt the girl but the police refused citing rules and regulations. Child Welfare Committee (CWC) Chairman Dinesh Chandra said the girl’s name was Ganga.
Extra SP (Rural) Rajkumar Aggarwal said: “The girl was lucky that part of her torso got stuck in the water hyacinth itself.” Thanks to this, she was saved from drowning. The girl was handed over to the Child Protection Committee and transferred to a foster home in Bareilly. We will wait for the arrival of the girl’s parents for the next 72 hours and in case no one shows up, a complaint will be registered.
