KUALA LUMPUR – The body of a baby boy, believed to be newborn, was found in the parking area near the trash bin at Sentul Utama apartment, here, early yesterday. Sentul police chief Zakaria Pagan said the baby was found supine by the public at about 12.30am yesterday.
“Next to the baby was a plastic bag containing the umbilical cord and placenta. So, the baby is possibly newborn,” he said when contacted by Bernama. Zakaria said police did not dismiss the possibility of the baby being thrown from a high place based on the serious injuries to the baby’s head.
“Maybe the person wanted to throw the baby into the trash bin but missed the target,” he said. Zakaria said the baby could also have been brought from another place and discarded there. He appealed to the public to lodge a police report if they had information on the incident.
On Tuesday, the body of a newborn baby girl was found floating in the Gombak River near the Titiwangsa Light Rail Transit (LRT) station at 9am.
