KLANG: A salesgirl unwittingly smothered her newborn baby boy to death when she hid him under a mattress to conceal the birth at a house in Jalan Meru.
As the woman behaved suspiciously, her older sister, aged 27, checked the former's bedroom and found the lifeless infant under the mattress.
Police have detained a 24-year-old woman to facilitate investigations.
North Klang police chief ACP Mohd Shukor Sulong said the woman was believed to have delivered the baby about 4pm Wednesday.
"The suspect's sister lodged a police report after stumbling on the dead infant.
"A police team went to the house and found the dead baby's umbilical cord in a plastic bag.
"The suspect claimed that the baby's father was a Bangladeshi who had returned to his country last March," he said.
Mohd Shukor said the woman was sent to the Tuanku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital for examination. - Bernama
