In a shocking incident, a still born foetus was found in the lavatory of Air Asia Plane and a 19-year gold was arrested for abandoning the foetus by wrapping in the toilet paper.

The taekwondo player was supposed to travel to South Korea on Thursday along with her coach for a tournament.

A routine check of the lavatories were made by the cabin crew of Guwahati-New Delhi AirAsia flight and they noticed still born foetus wrapped in toilet paper. The foetus was believed to be around six months old and was recovered from the toilet after it landed in Delhi from Guwahati on Wednesday afternoon.

Cabin crew raised an alarm and a teenage girl admitted that she lost the foetus. The AirAsia Plane with flight number I5 784 had originated from Imphal and it landed at the T3 terminal of Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport at around 3:30 PM.

As per the police reports, the woman who boarded the plane in Guwahati delivered a pre-mature dead foetus. The foetus has been sent for post-mortem and the woman has been sent for a medical examination.

The police said that her coach did not know about her pregnancy and she did not reveal about it in the documents filed for travelling in the flight.

Autopsy will help confirm the exact age of the foetus as it is suspected to be around five-six months old.

AirAsia issued a statement that reads: “A newborn infant was found lifeless and abandoned in one of the lavatories when the aircraft was being prepared for landing. Delhi Police were alerted and a doctor from the medical team at Delhi International Airport confirmed that the baby had been delivered onboard”.

The airlines said that the matter has been reported to DGCA and it further added: “We will be assisting in the investigation and cooperating with all concerned agencies. AirAsia India would like to apologise to all guests experiencing disruptions in their flight schedule”.
