JAKARTA (AFP) – Indonesian police yesterday detained the suspected mother of a newborn baby who was found dead in an aircraft toilet at Jakarta’s international Airport. Hani, a 37-year-old migrant worker from Cianjur in West Java, was held soon after arriving from Bangkok at Soekarno-Hatta airport around 1am, said airport police chief Ahmad Yusef. “She didn’t look healthy and won’t be questioned until she is fit,” Mr Yusef said. Police suspect Hani, who had worked as a domestic helper in Abu Dhabi, secretly gave birth during an Etihad flight to Jakarta on Saturday. Around four hours after take-off she began bleeding, forcing the captain to divert to Bangkok. The flight left for Jakarta an hour later without the sick woman, who flew home on a later flight. Ground cleaners in Jakarta found the full-term dead baby wrapped in a plastic bag in a drawer in one of the plane’s toilets, Mr Yusef said.
