Soro: In a horrific incident, a pack of stray dogs were sighted feasting on an infant dumped near the premises of Soro Community Health Centre (CHC) in Balasore district last night.
The incident came to light after some patient attendants came across the canine species devouring the baby in front of the hospital gate and called up Dr Satyanarayan Nayak. It was seen that the dogs had completely eaten the left leg of the body.
However, hospital staffs didn’t take any step to recover the body of the newborn and kept waiting for police. The body was seized after Soro Police arrived at the spot and conducted preliminary authorities.
The incident sparked tension at the hospital later as locals held the CHC authorities for the incident.
While police have started examining the records at the maternity ward of the hospital to ascertain the parentage of the baby, the doctors at the facility have claimed that the baby had been dumped there after being brought from somewhere else. They maintained that birth of no news born had taken place in the CHC in past 15 days.
