    How did you come to a conclusion that the child was 'Dumped'? There could be so many other reasons. Maybe the kid was kidnapped and left there. Maybe the kid wandered off. So many other reasons.

    Pathetic indication of Economic downfall and increasing poverty!

    Lately, there have been a few incidents of parents abandoning their child (children) and our good police look for the parent(s) to arrest. My advice to the police "do not arrest the parents" arrest the situation. Find the reason for parents abandoning their own children. Doesn't it usually lead us to the deteriorated economy of the land? Now, who is to be arrested? the parents or the culprit who destroy the economy? you know who?
