Hyderabad: The severed head of an infant was found dumped on the terrace of a house in Chiluka Nagar today, police said.
The incident came to light after a woman resident of the rented house went to the terrace this morning to dry clothes, a senior official said.
The woman's son-in-law Rajasekhar is a cab driver.
"They alerted the police immediately. It is still not clear how old the baby is, whether two months or three-months, and also if it is a boy or a girl," DCP (Malkajgiri Zone) Ch R Umamaheswara Sarma told PTI.
He said the head has been sent for postmortem.
