A three-month aborted foetus, which was dumped in the biomedical waste room of the hospital, was devoured by a cat on this week.
The shocking incident occurred at the King Edward Memorial (KEM) Hospital. The aborted foetus, which was dumped in the biomedical waste room of the hospital, was devoured by a cat on Tuesday evening.
The hospital management, however, claimed to be have ‘no knowledge’ of the incident. But Bhoiwada Police have taken cognisance and have registered an accidental death report.
According to hospital sources, there is a biomedical waste room near Gate No. 7 of the hospital, where body parts of the deceased, severed during post mortem, are disposed of.
“On Tuesday evening, we saw a cat had picked up a package in which there was a foetus and it dragged this away to a spot under the shelf near the hospital quarters and began eating it. One of hospital employee, who works in the mortuary, said this was not the first time an animal has entered the biomedical waste room; drawn by the strong odour, cats enter it hoping to find something to eat,” he said.
