Shillong, Sept 20: Police have apprehended a minor and the alleged father for abandoning their newborn at a waste bin in Mawpat, Shillong.
The lifeless body of the infant was discovered in a dumping truck on Tuesday, prompting an immediate investigation. Subsequently, both the mother and father were taken into custody on Wednesday.
The mother, aged below 18, resides in a rented residence in Mawpat, while the father, originating from Rymbai, has temporarily relocated to work in the area.

Collaborating with the Rangbah Shnong, they handed-over the two to police for further investigation.
