Bhubaneswar: The body of a toddler, a girl, was found in Kalikhama under Mancheswar police limits on Tuesday. The body was spotted near a canal on the Mancheswar - Chandaka road.

The child, aged about 2 years has multiple spots on her body. Locals spotted the body and alerted the local police which rushed to the spot and conducted a preliminary enquiry.

Prima facie it appears that the child has been abandoned by her family because she was suffering from some illness, a police official said on condition of anonymity.

"There are bedsores at several places on her body, including the neck. We have also recovered a pillow and a towel in the vicinity and sent it for forensic examination," the police official added.

Mancheswar police have registered a case of unnaural death and sent the body of the deceased for autopsy. Further investigation is on.
