KOTA BARU: The body of a newborn baby with its umbilical cord still intact was found in a dumpsite at Kampung Bukit Tajol in Machang near here.  

Machang OCPD Deputy Superintendent Dzulkifli Ab Ghani said a district council lorry driver found the body of the baby girl at 11.30am Monday (Oct 23).  

DSP Dzulkifli said the case was being investigated under Section 318 of the Penal Code for concealing birth and secretly disposing of it.

"The garbage disposal area is quite far from the main road and there are no residential units nearby.  

"The area is in the middle of a jungle," he said.  

The baby's body was sent to Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II for a post-mortem.
