In an amazing revelation, 14 skeletons of infants were buried on Sunday in an abandoned kampong in Kolkata.
Workers from Kolkata Municipal Corporation were cleaning a compound in the Behala area in South Kolkata when they encountered a baby's skeleton wrapped in a plastic bag.
The workers immediately informed the local police. Officers of the Haridevpur police station rushed to the spot and during further investigation, 13 other infant skeletons were found in 13 plastic bags.
On hearing the news, Kolkata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar, joint police commissioner (crime) Praveen Tripathi and deputy commissioner of South-West Division Nilanjan Biswas hurried to the spot.
Two years ago a large children's racket racket was discovered in Bengal. The police do not exclude the possibility that it is related to the findings of today. Another work theory is that a nursing home might be involved in dumping fetuses after performing illegal illegal abortions.
Kolkata Mayor Sovan Chattopadhay also reached the spot to take stock of the situation. "Workers from Kolkata Municipal Corporation's cleaning department were given the task of cleaning up this deserted area and found a baby's skeleton in the cleaning of the area, and the police were immediately informed and we found 14 skeletons wrapped in plastic. The skeletons contain a kind of chemical to prevent bad smells, so there is no alarm because the area is densely populated, "said mayor Sovan Chattopadhyay.
Meanwhile, the skeletons for autopsy have been taken to the MR Bangur hospital.
