In a shocking incident in Haryana -- infamous for its skewed sex ratio -- a newly born girl, wrapped in plastic, was dumped by a woman in a drain near Kaithal town, police said.

A pack of stray dogs pulled the wailing child out of the drain and started barking. This alerted passers-by who called the police.

The whole incident was caught in a CCTV installed nearby. The CCTV footage showed the woman throwing the baby and then dogs pulling out the baby girl from the drain. A police official told IANS that the incident occurred around 4 a.m. on Thursday. "The child is undergoing treatment at the Civil Hospital," he added.
