Police recovered the body of a newborn from a sidewalk opposite the emergency gate of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Friday (14 June).

A passerby noticed a dog tugging at a bag on the sidewalk and alerted the police via the national emergency hotline number, 999.

Sub-Inspector (SI) Mohammad Selim of Shahbagh Police Station confirmed the matter.

He said that upon receiving the call through the hotline, they discovered the body of the newborn girl inside a bag lying on the trash-covered sidewalk opposite the emergency gate around 11 am.

The body was subsequently sent to the morgue of the emergency department. The identity of those who left the body there remains unknown, he added.
