A stray dog was found eating the dead body of an infant boy inside the sub-divisional hospital of Jeypore in Odisha.
A group of people standing near the hospital watched fateful incident, but no one bothered to stop the dog. Some of them even recorded the incident on their mobile phones, police said.
Hospital authorities expressed their ignorance about the incident.
“After learning about the incident I personally rushed to the spot with my staff but found nothing. Neither the dog nor the baby’s body could be located. None of the patients was missing from our hospital” said the sub-divisional medical officer, Sitanshu Satapathy.
A team of senior police officers are verifying the mobile recordings and the incident is being investigated.
