Police told newsmen that the bodies were found by rag-pickers in Akhtar Colony’s sector E.

“The babies might have been dumped on Monday night. We have shifted their bodies to Jinnah Hospital,” police official Muqeem Khan said. Jinnah Hospital doctors said the babies probably died of hunger and cold.
