Shock As Newborn Baby is Abandoned by Parents Because She's Not a Boy (Photos)

A baby girl allegedly abandoned by the parents for not being a boy has been rescued by good samaritans.
The baby girl was covered by ants at a bin
A newborn baby girl has been rescued from a bin where she was found dumped in a plastic bag, covered in ants, Dailymail has reported.

According to the police, the sad incident happened in Bhopal in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. She's believed to have been abandoned by her parents because she was not a boy.

She was found by a passer-by who heard cries from inside the rubbish container, and found the severely underweight baby abandoned.

Dheeraj Rathore, who runs a tea stall, heard the baby cry  in the early hours of Saturday. Dheeraj said: 'I was passing through the bin when I heard the cries of a baby.

'I was was shocked to see an infant's head sticking out of a red polybag in a garbage vat among the bushes.

'Ants were all over her head and body."

Rathore called for help from two friends, and together they and his two friends cleared the insects from the infant's body, wrapped her in a cloth and took her to a nearby hospital.

Medical staff say the child's condition is critical, and she weighs just 3.5lbs. The normal weight for a baby carried to term is between  5.5lbs and 8.8lbs.

When she was brought to the hospital, she also has several bruises and marks on her body which could indicate physical abuse. Police have registered a case and are looking for the parents.

The preference of sons over daughters is a serious issue in many parts of India, with fewer than 800 girls are born for every 1,000 boys in some states. This has several causes; as daughters are traditionally married off with a dowry, they leave the family and are not around to care for their parents and a dowry can be costly.

Sons are also traditionally seen as potential heirs to property and the family business,  however gender equality campaigners are trying to change this view.
