THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a shock­ing in­ci­dent, a two-day-old baby girl was flushed down the toi­let at a clinic in Ker­ala.

The in­ci­dent came to light af­ter the plumbers tried to open the choked toi­let at the clinic of Dr Ab­dul Rah­man in Palakkad’s Malap­pu­ram. Ac­cord­ing to The News

Minute, the woman who worked at the clinic had com­plained about the clogged com­mode. On Fri­day, the plumbers no­tice a ‘ball-like’ ob­ject in the pas­sage. To their hor­ror, they dis­cov­ered the body of the baby girl, which was not de­com­posed yet. ‘There wasn’t much of a foul smell em­a­nat­ing from the toi­let. The body hadn’t de­com­posed when we re­cov­ered it. But the baby’s pla­centa was in­tact and there was blood in­side the com­mode. See­ing the colour of the blood, the do­mes­tic worker mis­took it for muddy wa­ter,’ the cops said. Po­lice said ei­ther the par­ents of the in­fant flushed her down the toi­let or the mother de­liv­ered her in the com­mode and left the clinic. The cops are work­ing on the ‘mother de­liv­er­ing the child’ the­ory as the pla­centa was still at­tached to the body and there was blood all over.
