Where is Baby India Now?
Karima Jiwani, 40, was arrested on Thursday on charges of attempted murder, cruelty to children, aggravated assault, and reckless abandonment. She is accused of abandoning her newborn daughter in a plastic bag in the woods in Georgia in 2019.
The child, who was dubbed “Baby India,” was found alive by a family in Cumming, Georgia, on June 6, 2019. She was just hours old at the time and had her umbilical cord still attached.
Authorities identified the child’s father about 10 months ago using advanced DNA investigative practices and familial DNA. Within the past week, they used DNA to identify Jiwani as the mother. Freeman said that Jiwani likely gave birth to the child in a vehicle and then drove for a “significant period of time” with the baby in the car before abandoning her in the woods. Jiwani is being held in the Forsyth County Jail without bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
How was Baby India Found?
Police in Georgia have arrested a woman for abandoning her newborn daughter in a plastic bag in the woods nearly four years ago. The girl, who was dubbed “Baby India,” was found alive by a family in Cumming, Georgia, on June 6, 2019. She was just hours old at the time and had her umbilical cord still attached.
The woman, who has not been identified, was arrested on Thursday on charges of attempted murder, cruelty to children, aggravated assault, and reckless abandonment. She is being held in the Forsyth County Jail without bond.It is not clear why the woman abandoned her daughter, but authorities believe she may have been struggling with a mental health issue.The girl is now four years old and is living with a foster family. She is doing well and is thriving.
The case has drawn national attention and has sparked a debate about the issue of safe haven laws. Safe haven laws allow parents to anonymously surrender their newborns to safe locations, such as hospitals or fire stations, without fear of prosecution. In Georgia, parents can surrender their newborns up to 30 days after birth at any hospital or fire station.
The case of Baby India is a reminder of the importance of safe haven laws. These laws provide a safe and legal option for parents who are struggling to care for their newborns.
Baby India Arrest
The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office announced that a woman named Karima Jiwani, aged 40, has been arrested and charged in connection with the case of a newborn baby who was discovered wrapped in a plastic bag in Georgia four years ago. The charges against Jiwani include criminal attempt to commit murder, aggravated assault, reckless abandonment, and cruelty to children in the 1st Degree, among others.
According to the police, Jiwani is accused of leaving the baby, known as “Baby India,” in a wooded area on June 6, 2019. The infant was found crying, covered in blood, and still attached to the umbilical cord by a man who heard the baby’s cries from his residence. During a press conference, Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman expressed his determination to bring the person responsible to justice, emphasizing that it took four years to make this arrest.
Baby India Now
The girl, who is currently four years old, was given the nickname “Baby India” by hospital staff when she was discovered. She has since been adopted, and according to Sheriff Freeman, she is now a “healthy, happy child.” To protect her privacy, officials have chosen not to disclose her identity or provide additional details.
Sheriff Freeman revealed that the child’s father was identified through DNA testing approximately ten months ago, which eventually led them to trace her mother. The father, who remains unnamed, was unaware of the woman’s pregnancy and has not been charged in relation to the abandonment, as stated by Freeman.
According to reports from Fox TV Atlanta, Jiwani has a history of concealing pregnancies and experiencing unexpected births. Appen Media quoted Sheriff Freeman as mentioning that Jiwani, aged 40, has other children who range in age from attending school to being close to adulthood.
There is a Georgia regulation known as the Safe Haven Law, which allows mothers to leave their babies at medical facilities, police stations, or fire stations without facing criminal charges.
