FAISALABAD: A newborn was burnt alive after an unknown person threw the girl child in a garbage dump in Faisalabad's Kanal Road vicinity.

The child was burnt to death after sanitary workers set the garbage on fire.

The body was transferred to Allied Hospital's mortuary.

According to the police, this is the fifth such incident during the past 30 days.

"All of the newborns thrown in garbage dumps across the city were girls," a police spokesperson said. "Four of the five children were found dead, while a three-day-old child with disabilities was shifted to Hilal-e-Ahmar Hospital."  

Earlier this year in July, the police rescued a four-day-old baby after he was reportedly sold by his father for Rs15,000 in Tando Allahyar.

The child's mother had claimed that her husband, Abdul Ghafoor Qambrani, was an addict, who sold their newborn baby for money to buy drugs. 

It is illegal to buy a baby or adopt one without fulfilling legal formalities.

Incidents of dumping newborns on garbage dumps and selling them are not uncommon in Pakistan.
