2022 Apr 05, 8:13, Surkhet

The corpse of a newborn baby carried by a dog photographed at the premises of the Surkhet Provincial Hospital on Saturday has been identified. The identity was only determined after a police investigation.

The hospital's attention was drawn after a picture of a dog carrying the body of a headless newborn baby on the hospital premises went viral. It then requested the police administration to investigate the incident.

The hospital management had come under heavy criticism on social media for alleged serious negligence in managing the body.

According to the District Police Office, the baby was born to Pavitra BK of Dailekh Municipality-9 at the hospital. BK had given stillbirth to a baby at the provincial hospital on March 28. The body was handed over to the parents, who reportedly cremated it in a forest within the hospital area, according to Inspector of Police Kanak Bahadur Shahi. The body is believed to have been dug up by the dog from where it was buried.

Police have handed over the body of the newborn back to the couple for proper cremation.
