The residents claimed that the foetuses were thrown in a forest area after illegal abortion. The police has removed the foetuses and sent them for a post-mortem examination.
"The number of foetuses could be one or two. The correct number can be ascertained only after the post-mortem report is obtained. Most of the foetuses were in a semi-rotten state,"
Additional Superintendent of Police Jitendra Kumar Srivastava said.
A case will be registered and an investigation will be undertaken to initiate "action against the erring hospital, if any," Srivastava said.
