Nine foetus, allegedly dumped in the river by a private hospital, were on Thursday recovered along the banks of Daman Ganga river near Athaal, the police said. "Nine foetuses were found near Athaal along the banks of Daman Ganga, some of which were wrapped in plastic bags," they said.

These foetuses were dumped in the river around four days ago and were first spotted floating in the river by fishermen, who alerted the police in Silvassa, the police said.

A team of district officials, the police and doctors reached the spot and took possession of these foetuses, which got stuck in shrubs on the sea shore. The police has sent all foetuses to the VinobaBhaveCivilHospital for further examination, they said.
