A newborn girl was found dead in the toilet of a Kalyan hospital last week. The Mahatma Phule police are trying to trace the baby’s parents.
The incident came to light when the hospital’s ward boy was cleaning the toilet, the police said. He immediately brought it to the attention of the hospital’s staff and doctors, who informed the police.
The body deceased has been sent to JJ hospital, Marine lines, for a DNA test.
“The public toilet is frequented by many throughout the day. We are checking the CCTV camera footage of the past few days for clues. We are also going through the hospital’s records to find cases of women who delivered girls between Wednesday and Thursday and have been discharged after the delivery,” said inspector Vijay Bhise, of Mahatma Phule police station.
