CHINIOT: A newborn baby was found abandoned outside the district headquarters (DHQ) hospital Chiniot on Wednesday.

An unidentified woman left the baby wrapped in a piece of cloth outside the hospital before hurrying away.

Doctors at the medical facility said the baby is in good health and is believed to be two to three hours old.
