In a shocking incident, a couple allegedly abandoned their three minor children, including a nearly two-month-old boy, at the Gwalior railway station in Madhya Pradesh.

The police on Sunday said two girls, aged 6 and 7, and the boy, who had burn injuries, were found abandoned near the booking counter on Friday night.

The Railway Protection Force (RPF) police station in-charge Sanjay Arya stated that the boy was immediately admitted to the government-run Kamla Raja hospital. 

The two girls were sent to a shelter home with the help of the women and Child Development Department.

"The girls told us that they travelled in different trains for the previous two-three days with their parents who left after abandoning them while they were sleeping," the official said.

The girls also informed that they came to Gwalior from Dholpur (Rajasthan), he said.

The police official said some auto-rickshaw drivers confirmed the children were with their parents when they came here.

The official said an inquiry into the matter is underway and the police were examining CCTV footage of the area.  A search was on for the children's parents, he said.
