Three women find body of baby buried on vacant plot in Inanam

KOTA KINABALU: Three women made a shocking discovery of a dead baby buried on vacant land in Inanam near here on Wednesday (June 19).

They made the find after digging at a spot on the land located at Mile 5½ Jalan Tuaran where one of the women had earlier noticed a man and a woman acting suspiciously at about 8pm on Tuesday (June 18).

It was learned that the witness had seen the couple, who were carrying a bag and a shovel, from a first-floor rented room where the three young women were staying, not far from the land.

After seeing the couple leave, the trio wanted to check what the couple had buried on Tuesday (June 18) night but decided against it as it was raining.

Instead, they went to the land at 8pm the following day and dug up the earth at the said spot.

They immediately alerted the police after finding the foetus in the ground.

Kota Kinabalu police chief Asst Comm Kasim Muda confirmed the case when contacted on Thursday (June 20).

He said a team, including personnel from the Sabah police contingent’s forensics unit, had gone to the location to investigate.

The foetus has been sent to Queen Elizabeth Hospital I for the next course of action, he added.

"Further investigations are being carried out under Section 318 of the Penal Code for concealing a birth,” said ACP Kasim.
