“In about half an hour’s time since receiving the call, police managed to rescue the girl. By the time they reached her, she was dangerously holding on to the pipe but police safely pulled her up,” Konaseema district Superintendent of Police P Sridhar said.

According to the police, the girl’s mother Suhasini (30), a native of Gudivada came in touch with Ulava Suresh (30) while working in a hotel in Tadepalli. Their relationship continued and Sushasini gave birth to a girl, who is one year old now.
