A baby boy is reported to have been burned to death at Kasoa Kumbe near Opeikuma in the Awutu Senya East Municipality of the Central Region.

According to reports, it was one of the residents, who saw a black wrapped polythene bag dumped behind the school building in the community.

It was initially thought to be just rubbish, but later found out to be a human being.

A lady is said to have taken the wrapped polythene bag and dumped it at the regular refuse site, where she set it ablaze without first checking to see what was contained in it.

An eyewitness, Alhassan Abdul Razak in an interview with Kasapa News, said after some hours, residents discovered that part of the baby had burnt to ashes when the woman returned to dump more refuse at the site.

Razak, said they do not know the mother of the toddler or whether the boy died before being placed in the polythene bag or died in the fire.

The baby’s body, has since been conveyed, while the case has been reported to the police pending investigation.
