Reportedly the baby girl was flushed down in the toilet and was taken out when plumbers tried to clear the passage.

A doctor, with the help of a plumber, recovered the body of a two-day-old girl from toilet outlet line at Palakkad district in Kerala on Friday.

Dr Abdul Rehman, who runs a clinic next to his house in Perinthalmanna town, called the plumbers after his domestic worker noticed the clog and what she believed was muddy water. To the horror of the plumbers as they tried to unblock the toilet, they noticed something which looked like a ball. The body of the newborn, her placenta still attached, was stuck in the duct.

The attached placenta, however, also suggest that the mother had given birth inside the washroom. In the meanwhile, the body of the baby was sent to nearby Thrissur medical college for the post-mortem procedure.

Dr Abdul Rahman also filed a complaint and based on the complaint the police filed a case against the newborn's parents, who are said to be absconding.
