The baby boy was found at the Pangsapuri Permata near Bandar Perda
“I came to look for bottles,” Manuf reportedly said, “While scourging through the pile, I noticed a strange bundle. I picked it up and noticed it was of batik cloth which was tied with a rope.”
“I lifted it up, felt it and noticed there was a round object like a head and immediately put it back. I opened it up and saw a baby covered with batik and tied with a black strap, newsprint and black plastic.”
Manuf immediately informed nearby traders who took him to the Bukit Mertajam police station to lodge a report. The baby’s body has been taken to the Bukit Mertajam Hospital to undergo an autopsy.
Chairman of the Seberang Perai Tengah Police Assistant Commissioner Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid has confirmed the incident and has said that an investigation will be conducted.
Bukit Mertajam is a town in Central Seberang Perai, Penang, Malaysia
