ISKANDAR PUTERI - A month-old baby was found dead by his mother when she returned home from work on Monday (June 24).

Iskandar Puteri OCPD Asst Comm Dzulkhairi Mukhtar said the tour guide arrived at her house in Taman Nusa Bayu, Gelang Patah at around 5.30am.

He said 33-year-old Nurul Hidayah Norajizzi went up to the bedroom on the first floor, where the baby was sleeping alone.

"The victim was motionless and his body had already turned bluish when the mother entered the room," said ACP Dzulkhairi, adding the victim was found face-down.

He said Nurul Hidayah tried to revive her son, but failed and rushed to her husband, who was sleeping alone in the living area of the house.

ACP Dzulkhairi said Nurul and her 25-year-old husband Mohamad Abdullah Ismail, rushed her son's body to the Gelang Patah Health Clinic.

"However, the medical officer on duty at the clinic informed the couple that their son was already dead," he said.

ACP Dzulkhairi said the medical officer did not find any evidence of anything criminal or torture on the body of the deceased.

The case is being investigated under Section 31(1) of the Child Act 2001.
