New Delhi Television reports that her tiny body was recovered when plumbers tried to clear the passage. Shocked plumbers tried to remove the baby but failed as the placenta thread was still stuck to the baby and caught in the dirt.

In a shocking incident, a two-day-old baby girl was flushed down the toilet at a clinic in Kerala.

Dr Abdul Rehman, who runs a clinic next to his house, noticed an obstruction in the toilet bowl and called the plumber on Friday morning, according to a report in NDTV. It has also been speculated that the mother might have delivered the baby inside the washroom as the placenta was yet intact. Authorities believe the parents must have brought the baby to the clinic on the pretext of consultation and later flushed her down the toilet.

An investigation is now underway and police are trying to find the newborn's parents, who are believed to have fled.
