Bodies of twin baby girls, about 10 days old, were found dumped in a garbage bin near the EWS flats in the Dadu Majra Colony on Monday morning.
An employee cleaning the bin spotted a baby’s body wrapped in cloth. When the police arrived, it found that there were two bodies wrapped together.
The bodies were sent to the Government Multi-Specialty Hospital, Sector 16, where these were kept in the morgue.

Inspector Ranjodh Singh, SHO of the Sector 39 police station, said it seemed the bodies had been dumped about two days back. On Sunday, the sweepers had their weekly off so no one came to know about it.
The police said that the bodies were decomposed and they could not establish the gender. It was doctors at the GMSH-16 who told them that both babies were girls.
In the last three months, at least four such cases have been reported.
On May 8, the body of a female baby, about five days old, was found near the rear gate of the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation in Sector 30.
On April 5, Vashisht, a resident of Yamuna Nagar, was arrested for allegedly abandoning the body of his new-born daughter near the cremation ground in Sector 25.
The baby, born on April 1, died a natural death, but Vashisht, instead of paying Rs 100 for its burial, left it near a garbage bin.
On March 17, the police booked a couple for abandoning a two-day-old baby whose body was found outside the Government College, Sector 11.
The police tracked the parents from a tag of GMSH-16 found on the body.
On March 2, the body of a one-week-old baby was found in Patiala-ki-Rao Choe in Dadu Majra Colony.
