    Such couples if at all have no love towards own offspring should avoid conceiving. Its a coldblooded murder without any mercy on humanity. There are so many ways to avoid being impregnated. New born Angel discarded in such a way that even God may not forgive the parents.

    Our law system is just a joke. These criminals so soon got bail, they should have been booked under attempt to murder. Just imagine if the baby would not have been rescued in time, what could have happened. Minimum 10 yrs rigorous punishment should be given to them. In future other people will not dare do such a heinous crime.

    Sometime back, The Times of India reported that nine-in-ten of the 11 million abandoned children in India were girls India is home to 31 million orphaned children, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Girls are more likely to be abandoned, sex-selectively aborted or killed in stances of infanticide than are boys. This is rooted in a cultural bias against girls, whose dowries are costly. Earlier, in many cities' municipal hospitals, a cradle was kept, where the unwanted infant could be placed. That facility is not there now, hence infants are kept in dustbins, forests, gutters and nullahas. St.Theresa of Kolkatta was famous to rescue the infants from gutters, hence she is known as Saint of the Gutters. Since the courts are lenient on this issue, the abandonment of infants, specially girl child is continued in India. However, this abandonment has many reasons, which our poor country can not address.

    it was foregone conclusion that only nationalist people can do this kind of heinous act...some time ago some religious leader of this religion was barking that Hindus are the most nonviolent people and they cannot do crime...this is the most heinous act....the hypocrisy of majority people is in full view now..

    Thank God the Parents are found .What next?is the baby with them again or again they might throw off the kid?Cant imagine the lady who carried for 9 months ,delivered has no feelings ?Everything died in her?As if it is a bundle of thrash?she could atleast leave it or give to Ashram ,instead of throwing.when it was a Boy would they take home ?let that baby grow up with parents than in Ashram.Are they atleast ready to take back baby now?let it have a family.Instead of punishing them govt must try to give them some help to take back that baby..whether in Ashram or in home ,help is needed.What I notice here is ,mother has some marks on face.whether it is some from husband ?thatswhy she abandoned?First findout the cause .He must be assaulting her ?

    There is no strong law to protect Girl child or Women only a slogan 'Beti Bachavo' and" COW - Gahi Bachahoo", BJP is in process of strengthening strong Cow Law.

    similar to abandoning of infants, abandoning cows also should be punishable offence... but that should be non-bailable offence.
