Police rushed to the place and investigation revealed that the foetus belonged to the Shankarambal Maternity Hospital and accidentally the foetus fell on the road when the hospital was transporting its luggage from its old place to its new premises at Rich Homes.
Doctors from the hospital has been quoted as saying, "I agree that the box containing the foetus was lying on the road, but it was not thrown knowingly. We closed our hospital at CJ D’Souza Road, Residency Road and were shifting things to our new centre at Rich Homes, Richmond Road. It fell on the way."
Meanwhile, police officials also stated, "Our team of policemen rushed to the spot after we received a call about a foetus that was found on the road. The policemen, after inspecting the spot, learnt that the foetus belonged to Shankarambal Maternity Hospital on Residency Road. We were informed that the hospital was under renovation and hence the labourers, without knowing about the incident, threw the foetus along with other medical waste on the road. The foetus was returned to the hospital after investigation. The hospital management cannot be held responsible."
According to a report published by Deccan Chronicle, the hospital preserved that foetus since Jun 2011 following the request of the parents who wanted to know the reason behind the baby's death in the mother's womb. However,
following some problems and the bomb blast in Bangalore, the hospital could not send the foetus to Chennai as none of the courier companies were ready to accept the foetus as courier. Here it can be mentioned that according to the doctors in the hospital, Bangalore does not have the facilities to conduct a foetal autopsy investigation.
