Newborn baby found dumped in TNB substation


SEREMBAN: Cries coming from a Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) substation in Ampangan 2, here today led to the discovery of an abandoned infant. At about noon today, the staff of an adjacent petrol station was cleaning the station’s toilet when he heard sounds of a baby crying.

The employee then alerted his manager before alerting the police. Seremban district police chief assistant commissioner Muhamad Zaki Harun said police arrived at the scene shortly after, and located the baby. “The baby boy was wrapped in cloth, with its umbilical cord still attached. It had several insect bites on its body,” he said, adding that police sent the baby to the Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital for further treatment.

“We believe the baby was born at another location and later dumped at the substation,” he said. Muhamad Zaki said the hospital’s checks show that the baby was born less than 24 hours before he was found. Police will examine closed-circuit television footage from the adjacent petrol station in order to determine the identity of the person who had dumped the baby.

The case is being investigated under Section 371 of the Penal Code for abandonment.
