In a shocking incident, a peon belonging to a local hospital threw an amputated limb into a dustbin near the Municipal Corporation of Faridabad (MCF) office. The police found the limb on Tuesday.

Though the police say the limb might be of a woman, but the director of the Royal Multi-speciality Hospital here has admitted that it was their peon’s mistake. Moreover, the police have identified the woman as Salochana of Sector 10 who is undergoing treatment at the hospital.

A few months ago, the woman had met with an accident and had suffered infection in the foot. So, her legs had to be amputated, said doctors at the hospital. “A few months ago, the patient had met with an accident. She was treated at different hospitals. She finally came to us and we had to amputate her limb as it was infected,” said Dr Anuj Dingra, director of the hospital.

“The limb was found in the MCF bin,” Dr Dingra added. “It was our peon’s mistake, who threw the hospital’s bio-waste in an MCF bin,” he said.

The police, however, want to get a DNA test conducted on the limb to confirm the matter. “We are sending the foot to Madhuban lab for DNA test,” said Surinder Singh, SHO, NIT.
