2 female foetuses found dumped in Gujarat

Palanpur: Two cases of sex selection  have come to notice in a span of two days in north Gujarat, police said on Sunday.

A female foetus was recovered from an open plot belonging to a trust in Nawa Sudasna village in Mehsana district on Sunday.

Dasarathsinh Paramar, who noticed the foetus and informed the police, said it seemed that someone had thrown it there after getting rid of an unwanted girl child. Police said a case has been registered and investigations begun.

Police sub-inspector J B Acharya of Wagdod police station in Patan district said that a newborn girl child was found buried near Koita village on Saturday. The body was exhumed and sent to Dharpur hospital in Patan for postmortem. Acharya said the postmortem report was awaited to ascertain real reason behind the baby’s death, adding that investigations in the case were on.

Just a week ago, a girl child was found abandoned outside the women rescue home of Palanpur in Banaskantha district.
