“Some neighbours heard the cries of the child and came out of their house. They pulled her back and informed the police,” the officer said.

Polices said the family members informed them that the woman had tried to abandon her daughter at a railway station, however, she was rescued.

The officials are verifying this claim and the information provided to them that the child was suffering from some ailments, which had pushed the dentist to depression.
