The Pune police officials found a five to six months old infant inside a dargah in Kharadi on Monday evening, officials said.
The girl child was found at the dargah around 6:30 pm. The infant was found wearing a yellow petticoat, white half pant with pink dots on it and left inside the dargah property.
A case under Section 317 (exposure and abandonment of a child under 12 years of age) of the Indian Penal Code was registered at Chandan nagar police station against the guardian of the child.
