14 skeletons of newborn babies were found wrapped in a plastic bag at an empty plot in Kolkata on Sunday, September 2. The skeletons were discovered when workers were cleaning the area for a real estate agency.
The plot is situated in Raja Ram Mohan Roy Sarani which comes under the jurisdiction of the Haridevpur Police Station. A senior police officer told PTI that it could have been an abortion racket that disposed of the bodies of the newborn babies.
Some of the bodies have been fully decomposed while others were in a semi-decomposed state.
