Meanwhile, a case has been registered against unidentified person at Focal Point police station.

Inspector Gurmeet Singh, station house officer (SHO), Focal Point police station, said it could be a child out of wedlock and therefore, its mother might have abandoned it due to social stigma, or the baby might have been abandoned as it was a girl. Later, the dogs found the body and attacked it for meat.
