"We are trying to find the parents of the baby and we suspect that this must have happened with their consent", local police chief Abhinandan Singh said of the incident, which he described as "very inhuman".
According to CNN, the baby was only four days old and had been buried alive for about four to six hours before she was rescued. It was a clay pot and, from inside, they could hear an infant crying. "But the voice was actually coming from the pot", he told the newspaper.
"The police took the baby to the city hospital where she is getting treatment", he confirms.
Indian families, especially in poor communities, generally prefer boys, as they consider girls to be a financial burden for educating and marrying off, which requires money as a dowry.
Investigating officer Pradeep Kumar Singh told the Washington Post on Tuesday that nobody had witnessed the girl being buried alive, and noted that the cemetery was located in a rural rural area and has no closed circuit television. "When they pulled out the pot, they found a baby in it", Mr Singh said.
"She was a premature baby, possibly born at 30 weeks, and weighed a mere 1.1kg [2.4lb] which is a very low birth weight". Her condition is stable now.
