Two foetuses found in separate locations
By RASHITHA A. HAMID
KUALA LUMPUR: Two foetuses were found dumped in separate locations three hours apart in Sentul and Dang Wangi.
The first foetus, believed to be a female, was found at the Metro Prima Kepong sewage treatment plant.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said initial investigations revealed that the foetus is less than five months old.
He said the foetus was found by an Indah Water Konsortium technician when he was conducting a routine check at about 11.15am at the plant.
“We believe the foetus was thrown into the sewage pipeline from the neighbouring area because no one was seen in the vicinity of the plant which is guarded 24-hours,” he said.
The second foetus was found decomposed near a river, behind Putra World Trade Centre at about 2.30pm.
An eyewitness, Nurmaini Rafiee, 50, who alerted the police said she was informed about the find by a boy who was passing-by the river.
Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman said they could not identify the gender of the foetus as it was badly decomposed and not well-developed.
Both the remains were sent to the Kuala Lumpur hospital for post mortem.
Police urged those with information to call the nearest police station.
