The village of Mudalgi has shaken apart when they came to know that 7 fetuses have been found under a bridge kept in 5 glass bottles.
DHO Dr. Mahesh Koni said that all the fetuses look to be around 5 months old and were kept in bottles and stuffed in boxes and thrown under the bridge near Mudalgi village.
As per the DHO, it could be a case of fetal sex determination and foeticide.

All the fetuses will be brought to BIMS for further investigation, the DHO added.
A special team has been formed to investigate the foeticide incident.
