A female foetus was found in a vacant plot on Noorwala road on Sunday. The residents informed Basti Jodhewal police and the foetus was later sent to Civil Hospital for post-mortem examination.

The dogs were tearing away the foetus when some residents saw it, an eyewitness said.

The police registered a case under section 318 (concealment of birth by secret disposal of dead body) of IPC against unidentified persons.

Inspector Gurpreet Singh, SHO at the Basti Jodhewal police station, said they are inquiring from all hospitals, mid-wives and nursing homes in adjoining areas about any woman who delivered a baby girl in the past few hours or got an abortion done.
