A woman identified by the name of Anatolia Hhando (31), resident of Daa Ward in Karatu District died at her home after illegal abortion of five-month old foetus.
The incident occurred on August 18 this year at 08:30 a.m. in Daa Ward when a woman delivered a feotus and dumped it in a rubbish pit, adjacent to the road.
The Arusha Regional Police Commander Liberatus Sabas said the foetus was discovered by children who were passing by and saw a dog carrying a plastic bag with limbs hanging from it.
The children reported the grisly incident to neighbours who later contacted the police.
Mr. Sabas said the police then started a manhunt in collaboration with the residents. They found the suspect of the incident dead in a house which was under construction. She died of over bleeding.
