Senior police officials in Sangli district said the remains were "buried with the intention of disposing them".

The police said that they found the foetuses while they were investigating the death of a woman who had undergone an illegal abortion.

Activists say the incident proves yet again that female foeticide is rampant in India despite awareness campaigns.
