A newborn male baby was found abandoned on the road-side here. The baby was left under an autorickshaw in shivering cold when a tea stall woman noticed it and sought the assistance of Childline by calling 1098 service.

Childline team NGO partner HELP representative B.V.Sagar rushed to the spot and rescued the baby on Thursday night. Wrapping the baby in a towel, the baby was rushed to a near-by private hospital, where it was put in the intensive care unit.
