What local media writes

चित्तौड़गढ़ के गंभीरी नदी पर बने महाराणा प्रताप सेतु मार्ग पर शाम को युवक प्रकाश जाट अपने दोस्त के साथ सिटी की तरफ जा रहे थे। उसी दौरान उन्हें पुलिया पर खड़ी दो महिलाओं ने बुलाया और कहा, कोई नवजात को नदी में फेंक गया। प्रकाश जाट ने इसकी जानकारी पुलिस को दी। मौके पर कोतवाली थानाधिकारी विक्रम सिंह राणावत मय जाब्ता मौके पर पहुंचे। सिविल डिफेंस की टीम भी पहुंची। नदी में उतर कर नवजात के शव को बाहर निकाला। शव को मोर्चरी में रखवाया।

यह खबर आग की तरह चारों तरफ फैली। जिससे मौके पर भीड़ उमड़ पड़ी। पुलिया पर ट्रैफिक जाम लग गया। पुलिस को काफी मशक्कत करनी पड़ी और रास्ता खुलवाया।

वहीं, दो महिलाओं द्वारा कार से उतर कर नवजात को फेंकने की बात भी सामने आ रही थी, लेकिन इस बात की पुष्टि नहीं हुई।                

PaaLoNaa’s Perspective :

Abandoning of newborn is a heinous crime. Nobody has a right to dispose of a baby, wherever he/she wants. It also doesn’t matter whether the baby is alive or dead.

In India, newborn babies are either buried or thrown into the water after death. They are not burnt. 

But PaaLoNaa appeals since its inception, not to bid farewell to the dead baby in water or any other open public space. It’s illegal, and inhuman also as stray animals make them their prey. Rather bury them in proper and designated place in concerned locality.

But, if the baby was alive, they could have opted Safe Surrender. There might be some valid reasons for abandonment, but infanticide cannot be justified. An unsafe and unhygienic place cannot be the right place for any baby. Awareness about safe surrender and public cradles is very important.
