The incident is the latest in the series of similar ordeals that occurred in the country.
Last year, a 3-day-old girl was reportedly rescued after being buried alive by her parents who wanted to have a boy.
The newborn was found alive placed in a clay pot and wrapped in cloth that was buried in a shallow grave in Northern India.
According to the reports, workers were digging a grave for a stillborn baby when they noticed the infant who was called a brave fighter by doctors.
In January last year, another newborn baby was rescued after a local in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, heard her weak whimpers.
The child’s cries were heard as temperatures dropped to only 3C and she was taken to a nearby hospital.
In 2017, another newborn was found in a thorny bush after her parents allegedly left her for dead. Fortunately, a local resident found her in time and took her to safety.
