Charges on Karima Jiwani

Body camera footage from responding law enforcement officers showed the crying child wrapped in a yellow plastic bag with her umbilical cord still attached. Baby India’s birth likely took place inside a vehicle, according to Freeman.

Additional evidence revealed that Jiwani drove for a “significant period of time” after the birth with the child in the car “until she decided to tie the baby in a plastic bag and throw it into the woods to die,” Freeman said. CNN could not determine whether Jiwani has an attorney.

Under Georgia’s Safe Place for Newborns Act, also known as the “Safe Haven Law,” mothers cannot be charged criminally if they leave their baby with medical facility volunteers or staff, or at a fire or police station, according to the Georgia Department of Human Services.


The Georgia law applies to children 30 days old or younger. The sheriff’s office investigation discovered Jiwani had a history of “hidden and concealed pregnancies and surprise births,” Freeman said, adding digital evidence indicated she had known of this particular pregnancy for a period of time and “went to extremes to conceal” it.

“There is no evidence, at this point, that the father was aware of either the pregnancy or the abandonment of (the) baby,” the sheriff added. Freeman did not discuss details of Baby India’s current status Friday, but said she was “happy, healthy and in a safe place.”

“This investigation has taken thousands of hours and we have never stopped in those four years. I was in this room and I told them that we would bring them to justice. I didn’t know it would take four years,” Freeman said. The sheriff also revealed that Jiwani had a history of hidden pregnancies; however, he said investigations have found no additional criminal acts like this.


Authorities say they were able to use DNA evidence to identify the baby’s father 10 months ago. They say Jiwani gave birth in her car and drove for a significant amount of time before abandoning the baby. Neighbors heard a baby crying and discovered “Baby India” tied up in the bag in June 2019.

In the days after the incident, Channel 2 Action News showed her body camera video of the moments officers opened the bag to find the newborn with the umbilical cord still attached. Video shows officers frantically wrapping the crying baby in a jacket.

Alan Ragatz told Regan it was an “act of God” that he and his daughters found the newborn. Once again on Friday, Freeman thanked the Ragatz family and the Forsyth County community for supporting Baby India.Read More…….
