Police said, bodies of 14 newborn baby in diversely decayed stage, were found enwrapped in plastic bags, in a deserted place of Haridevpur area in Southern Kolkata, on Sunday, during the dusting and sweeping programme.
The senior officer of Kolkata police said, that when the workers were cleaning the greenish vacant land on Raja Rammohan Roy Sarani under the Haridevpur police station, they noticed the plastic bags in which the little bodies were wrapped.
The officer said, “Some abortion racket operating nearby could be behind it.” He added that some of the bodies were received in a semi-decayed stage and rest of them were entirely decayed.
The officer also said, “ We have no clue where from they (the bodies) have come. Going by circumstantial evidences, it seems that they were dumped there as the land was lying abandoned.”
