Body of a two-day-old girl was flushed down a toilet in Kerala and was recovered later by plumbers when they tried to clear the clogged passage on Friday.

According to reports, Dr Abdul Rehman, owner of a clinic besides his house, called the plumber on Friday after discovering an obstruction in the toilet bowl. Plumbers, who were trying to clean the passage noticed something similar to a ball, but they were stunned to see a newborn’s body, with the placenta still attached in the duck, as per the Police.

The case is being thoroughly investigated, the police further added. The investigating officers suspect that the baby was brought into the clinic for consultation but was flushed down the toilet bowl.

However, the placenta suggest that the mother had given birth inside the toilet. On doctor’s complaint a case of unnatural death has been filed, but the parents have not been identified till now. The body has been sent to Thrissur medical college for post-mortem.
