A thief was horrified after looking inside his stolen backpack, police in India said.
Kishore Kale thought he scored after stealing his latest item, but little did he know that instead of cash and other valuable items, he will find a baby.
When he unzipped the bag he stole while riding the subway at the Kurla train station, he saw a newborn baby inside.
The 20-year-old panicked, looked around and decided to leave the backpack and run.
However, a ticket checker became suspicious and caught Kale. As Kale tried to explain his situation, a crowd gathered at the site, making it even more difficult for him to leave.
Police arrived at the scene, and they arrested Kale. The 15-day-old baby was transported to Bhabha Hospital, where doctors confirmed that the baby was in good health.
The baby has been placed with a welfare services home.
According to the initial investigation, Kale has no relationship with the baby, but so far, no one has filed a missing baby report. Police said that they are currently reviewing surveillance video at train stations in order to locate the baby’s parents.
