Belagavi: In a shocking incident, seven foetuses were found floating in a gutter in Mudalgi town of  Belagavi district on Friday June 24.

According to the police, the foetuses were stuffed in five boxes and thrown into the flowing gutter.

The incident came to light after passers-by noticed the boxes floating in the drain near Moodalagi bus stand and informed the police.

District Health Officer (DHO), Mahesh Koni, confirmed the incident. Prima facie, it appears to be a case of gender detection and foeticide.

All foetuses were five-month-old and a case would be lodged with the local police station in this regard through the gram panchayat, Koni stated.

The foetuses have been kept in the mortuary of the local hospital.

After a complaint is lodged, the foetuses will be taken to the Belagavi Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for conducting tests, Koni said.

A special team will be formed to investigate the matter after bringing it to the notice of the district commissioner, he said.
