“A local who supplies egg in our market saw him first and I told him to leave the kid in my care. I have informed police and they have told me to wait till someone from toddler’s family shows up, otherwise they will see”, a relative of woman’s shopkeeper said.

“When we found this kid, he was scared. Sometimes he tells us he is from Nepal and on the other hand he says he lives here”, she said.

“How one can abandon their child, he looks innocent. The family members should come here to take him”, a local said.

Armaan, the abandoned kid, said that he is a resident of Nepal and lives in Jammu’s Gangyal area.

“We are from Nepal and at noon my father told me to stand here as he had some work, since then he has not returned to see me. We run a momo cart here”, Armaan said.
