The incident was reported to the police on Monday when the hospital informed them about the death of a 2-month-old newborn. All angles are being investigated, according to Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Benita Mary Jaiker, and a murder case has been filed against unknown persons.

Despite the fact that no arrests have been made in the case so far, the infant's mother is the primary suspect. The officer stated that she is being interrogated at the police station and that further investigation is ongoing.

The child's father was near their home at the time of the tragedy, working at a department shop that he runs.

A neighbour told the reporters that the noise in the area woke him up because the child's mother had locked herself inside the house. Another neighbour claimed that after combing the area for some time, a group of them arrived at the house's terrace, where they discovered an unlatched room. He added,

They entered the room and found the child inside a microwave oven,” he said, adding that they then informed the police about the incident.
