Fetus, body parts sold as “waste” by the caretaker of the retirement home: CP | Nagpur News


Nagpur: The six fetuses, an ovarian cyst, two placentas and an ovary found in a dump in Quetta Colony near Telephone Exchange Chowk on Wednesday were sold to a scrap yard along with other materials by caretaker Purohit Bipindra Sahu for Rs 6,000, according to Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar.
He said the nearby nursing home was an extension of Radiance Hospital which treated Covid patients between July 20 and September 8 last year. We learn that the retirement home is currently being repaired.
The cops invoked Section 315 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) which relates to illegal abortion. This can result in a prison sentence of up to 10 years or a fine, or both.
A CCTV capture with police shows a scrap dealer, identified as Sunil Sahu alias Bihari Ramdular Gupta, dumping plastic-wrapped rubbish from his cart, making a call from his mobile phone and then leaving the scene.
Police sources said the nursing home closed after the death of gynecologist Yashodha Purohit in 2016 whose family ran the place. Dr. Yashodha was teaching at a homeopathy college in Nandanvan. She used to bring students to the nursing home to give them practical training for which the fetuses were kept, police said.
The nursing home was later run by Yashodha’s husband, Dr Gokul, the police sources added.
According to Kumar, the “age” of the six fetuses will be determined on Thursday through forensic examinations. “We’re trying to find out more about why the fetuses were there at the nursing home,” he said.
Additional City Commissioner Ram Joshi said action would be taken against the nursing home based on the charges. Chief Medical Officer Dr Narendra Bahirwar asked M/s Superb Hygienic Disposal for details of biomedical waste collected from 17 nearby nursing homes and hospitals.
