(Forsyth County, GA) The mother of “Baby India” has been indicted on two counts by the Forsyth County Superior Court.
Karima Rizwan Jiwani, 40, is accused of abandoning her newborn baby in the woods along Daves Creek Road in Forsyth County on June 9, 2019.
The baby, referred to as “Baby India”, was found by nearby residents wrapped in a plastic bag. She was taken to the hospital where she received care and was reported to be healthy.
After a four-year-long search involving several agencies, including the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Jiwani was arrested by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) on May 18. She was denied bond on May 20 and on June 15.
Jiwani was indicted in August on one count of criminal attempt to commit murder and one count of cruelty to children in the first degree.
The indictment states she “did knowingly and intentionally attempt to commit the crime of murder” and “did maliciously cause her newborn child known as Baby India…cruel and excessive mental pain.”
