In a similar incident in March this year, a female foetus was found dumped in Dwarka’s Sector 12. After an investigation into the matter, it was found that the foetus had been extracted from a 38-year-old woman who was a resident of Arunachal Pradesh.

The police had said that the foetus was then handed over to the relatives of the woman.

Meanwhile, in June, a hospital in Pune was booked for allegedly dumping a 16-week-old foetus in a garbage van for disposal. The officials had claimed that the woman had given birth to a still-born.
