MUMBAI: A six-month-old male foetus was recovered from a drainage near a public toilet in Santa Cruz on Monday. The Santa Cruz police have registered a case against unknown person.

Around 10am, a woman noticed the dumped foetus, which was wrapped in a paper, in Bhim Wada. She informed the police. Cops suspect that an unwed woman must have aborted the child illegally and dumped the foetus in the area.

Police are inquiring with locals and hospitals in the area to gather clues.

The foetus has been sent for post-mortem examination, said an officer.

In the recent past, the police have been coming across several cases of foetus dumping. On June 9, a decomposed five-month-old male foetus was found at Poisar near Laljipada slum in Kandivli. On June 8, two foetuses were found in a garbage bin near a civic school in Kurla (E) and Kandivli.
