KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 10 — Two aborted foetuses were found in separate locations in the city today.
One was found at a sewerage plant in Kepong and the other behind a private clinic in Jalan Ipoh.
The first foetus, believed to be five months old, was found by an Indah Water Konsortium technician when he was inspecting the plant at 11.05am.
Sentul police chief ACP Zakaria Pagan said initial investigations showed the foetus to be that of a girl with injuries on the back of the head. It also had a broken left leg.
He said the foetus was believed to been washed through a sewer pipe from the nearby area about 12 hours ago.
Zakaria said the second foetus was found by a boy, who then notified a nearby hawker, Nurmaini Rafiee, 50, at about 2.30pm.
“When I arrived at the scene and saw that foetus, I immediately alerted the police patrol unit passing the area,” Nurmaini told reporters at the scene.
Dang Wangi police chief ACP Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman said: “The foetus, however, had decayed and we could not determine its physical form.”
Both foetuses were taken to Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a post-mortem. — Bernama
