Muzaffarnagar: An unidentified woman, with her face covered in red, left a newborn girl at the staircase of a house in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district.

According to the footage from a CCTV camera, a grey Santro car arrived in the narrow lane of a locality and stopped outside a house, following which a person leaned out of the window and dropped the baby at the staircase before fleeing the spot.

A Kotwali Police Station officer said on Thursday that prima facie it appears that the accused was a woman with her face covered with red dupatta. From the blurred image, it seems that the car bears a Haryana number plate (HR).



The chief medical officer said the girl was left in front of the house in the evening. The locals found her after hearing her cry and admitted the child to a district hospital. "She is currently under treatment but her condition remains critical. We are hopeful of her recovery," news agency ANI quoted the CMO as saying.

According to National Crime Records Bureau data, a total of 885 cases of abandonment were registered in India during 2015 as compared to 983 cases during 2014, showing an increase of 10.0%. Maharashtra reported the highest number of such cases (219 cases), followed by Madhya Pradesh (145 cases).
