Foetus found in east Delhi school lab.

A SOUTH DELHI school is under the scanner after a female foetus was found in its science lab along with other dead animals. According to the police, it is still not clear how the school administration managed to procure a six-year-old female fetus. A case has been registered against the school administration at the Sangam Vihar police station under the Wild Animal Protection Act. According to the police, cops have recovered more than a dozen items from the lab including the six-month-old foetus, a dead Kingfisher bird and a dead parrot. According to DCP south-east, Mandeep Singh Randhawa, no arrests have been made yet as cops do not know from where the female foetus has been sourced. "A case has been registered against Tinu Public school administration. So far no arrests have been made in the case as we are still investigating. We are also trying to figure out how the school got the foetus," Randhawa told MAIL TODAY. According to the police, a team from By Mail Today Bureau in New Delhi PFA, an NGO, informed them that Tinu Public school in Sangam Vihar has procured a six-month-old foetus illegally for dissection in the science lab. When cops reached the spot, they found that the lab has many transparent boxes containing dead animals and birds. Later, they noticed a female foetus inside a transparent, plastic box. "When we asked school principal Urmila Malik about the items she said that the owner of the school had purchased all of them and she was not aware from where they have been sourced. She added that the school had no licenses for any of the items," complainant Gaurav Gupta told the police. The police have recovered a dead Kingfisher bird, the beak of a pigeon, a dead duck, a dead crow, a dead fish, paws of owl and a dead myna from the lab. "We have detained the school's staff to understand the motive behind such purchases. We are also trying to get information about the seller. Normally, a school gets such items from a licensed seller or a hospital. But before that they need a proper license which this school did not have," a senior police official said. According to the police, schools and colleges get such items with due permission from a government hospital. Hospitals generally provide these items for a limited period and the schools have to return them to the concerned hospitals.
