Mongar police arrested and detained a 45-year-old woman for false reporting information in connection with the infant yesterday.
She is general service personnel with one of the government agencies. She allegedly told Mongar hospital staff while taking the infant for medical care that she found the boy abandoned at Changshingpeg. It is a few hundred metres away from Mongar town.
However, Police found that the information was wrong. The woman reportedly took the infant from a 29-year-old mother who is her neighbour after the baby was delivered at home on Sunday.
It was learned that it was a case of unwanted pregnancy.
The baby is currently in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with minimal respiratory support with her mother.
The case is still under investigation.
