A nineteen-year-old Taekwondo player is the main accused in an incident which took on-board the Air Asia flight from Guwahati to New Delhi. The person, in question, lost the foetus that was found in one of the flight's lavatories. The foetus was found lifeless and wrapped in toilet paper, just as the flight was preparing for landing. However, the taekwondo player has come forward and claimed that she did not know about her pregnancy. In a harrowing incident on Wednesday, the Air Asia flight crew found the body of a newborn baby minutes away from landing in New Delhi. Air Asia, in a statement, revealed the details of the ordeal, 
"A doctor from the medical team at Delhi International Airport confirmed that the baby had been delivered on board."
