A one-year-old baby was found abandoned at the Government General Hospital, Nalgonda here on Tuesday.

The doctors instructed the staff to shift the girl to paediatric ward. The baby girl was found to be mentally challenged which might be the reason behind the parents abandoning the girl. The doctors conducted various tests to check her physical and mental condition. Later, the girl might be shifted to Sishuvihar in Nalgonda run under ICDS . Dr.D.Yadaiah, a paediatrician in the hospital, said that the hospital staff saw the baby girl crying on steps at a floor in the hospital.
