Shocked passersby filmed as the stray animal carried the newborn’s remains down the street near a hospital in the village of Gopalganj, in Madhya Pradesh.
Video then appears to show the dog fed parts of the baby to its puppies before police arrived and recovered the body.
Sanjay Soni, station house officer of the town police, said officers are now working to identify the baby and find out how the dog got hold of it.
‘As soon as we received the information, we reached the spot and found body of a new-born in disturbing condition,’ Soni told Asian News International.
Doctor Arun Saraf, who works at the district hospital close to where the dog was spotted, said: ‘After the incident came to light, we started an investigation.’
It comes after another stray dog was found with a dead human baby in a similar incident, also in Madhya Pradesh, which happened last month.
In a third such incident, in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, the body of a girl who died a few hours after birth was stolen by a dog after being left wrapped up in a rug on the floor in a hospital.
