Police said Jason Darjee, who is just short of his first birthday, was removed from his grandparents' home by his parents, Jiten Darjee and Chhali Subba, near 43rd and Glendale avenues on Wednesday.

The boy was placed in the care of his grandparents because he was malnourished from being homeless, police said. Darjee and Subba also had issues with drugs and alcohol, police said.
