New Delhi: An infant girl was found abandoned in an auto-rickshaw parked outside a government hospital here, police said Wednesday.

The girl, who seems to have been born two-three days ago, was spotted by one Mohammed Ejaz outside Safdarjung Hospital in south Delhi around 9.30 p.m. Tuesday.

Ejaz heard the baby's screams coming from a parked auto-rickshaw.

"Ejaz admitted the baby in the hospital's nursery after he failed to find her parents," police said.

"The infant has been kept in Safdarjung Hospital for medical treatment and her condition is now normal," police said.

They added that a tag was found tied on the baby's hand which suggests that she was born in Safdarjung Hospital.

Efforts are on to trace her parents, police said.
