New Delhi: The Delhi Police registered a case in connection with the recovery of a foetus from a lavatory of an AirAsia plane after it landed here from Guwahati on Wednesday, a senior police officer said. 

When an alarm was raised by the cabin crew about the discovery, a 19-year-old taekwondo player had admitted that she had lost the foetus. 

 

The woman was sent for medical examination, but she refused to undergo tests. The woman claimed she was not aware of her pregnancy and even her brother-in-law said her family was not aware she was pregnant.
