The Indian abandoned the child due to the fact that friends mocked him because of the large number of children. This was reported by the New York Post.
The incident took place in the city of Cochin, Kerala state in the southwest of the country. The priests of one of the churches found a newborn baby on the morning of May 31. CCTV cameras showed that the man kissed the boy's head goodbye and kept looking around as he left.
The police found and detained the parents of the child. They turned out to be 32-year-old Bitto Davis and his 28-year-old wife Pravitha. During interrogation, they admitted that they took this step, as friends and relatives teased them for the fact that they too often had children. The bullying became unbearable when others began to guess that the woman was pregnant with her fourth child.
“Bitto’s friends used to joke about his wife’s belly and asked if she was pregnant. When the woman gave birth, they came to Cochin to leave the baby in the church,”the policeman said.
A married couple is charged with child abandonment and child abuse.
