In a horrific case of foeticide, a 25-year-old Ayodhya Nagar resident named Sooraj Dubey, on Thursday morning, was alerted by one of his staffers about an abandoned foetus lying near Padole Hospital in Gopal Nagar, Nagpur.

“One of my staffers, Gangadhar, called me up on Thursday morning and informed me about an abandoned foetus lying in front of plot no 32, Nalode Layout, Gopal Nagar. As I reached the spot, at around 11:45 am, I noticed that no one from the locality had registered a complaint regarding it,” Gaydhane told Nation Next.
“The foetus was of the size of a finger, and dogs were sniffing it. They could've bitten it as well. Hence I immediately called up Pratap Nagar Police Station and briefed them about the incident,” he said.
“After reaching the spot, Police investigated the foetus and later conducted it’s post mortem. As I sat with Police Inspector Vishal Gaydhane to inspect the CCTV footages of the area, we could not find much evidence regarding the person behind the crime.”
“However, we did discover one footage where a lady, who had covered her face with a scarf, was stirring something near the incident spot, at around 5:47 am on Thursday.”
“I noticed that the baby wasn’t carelessly thrown, it was carefully wrapped inside a box with newspapers and a plastic bag. I believe that the accused could be someone from or around the locality as well,” Gaydhane said.
“We interrogated everyone from the locality, but couldn’t find any suspects so far. The nurses predicted that the foetus could be around three to five months old. Police are further investigating the matter,” he added.
