Abandoned infant placed under probation watch

Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage yesterday (2) ordered probation officers to place the infant who was abandoned in a toilet of the Meenagaya train to Batticaloa, under the supervision of probation officers for another three years.

The magistrate also instructed the officers to monitor whether the infant’s nutrition, health and education are being maintained properly.

The lawyer representing the parents informed court that they had got married in February this year a few days after the incident, and that the child’s father now works in Colombo and that he

supplies all requirements of the child including milkfood.

The lawyer requested court that the mobile phone belonging to the child’s mother be released from police custody.

The child’s parents who have been released on bail in connection with the incident, appeared in court yesterday when the case was taken up for hearing.
