PATNA: A woman in Bihar killed her six-day-old baby girl and dumped into the safety tank of the toilet as she didn’t want to bring up the second daughter.
The horrible incident took place at Punas village in Samastipur district, sending shock waves in the areas.
Shockingly the baby was killed on the day when the entire family was busy celebrating “Chhati”, a ritual conducted on 6th say after birth of every child.
Police said the woman identified as Pinki Devi, wife of Santosh Rai, was not happy right since she gave birth to a baby girl for the second consecutive time. She had delivered the baby at a local government hospital on January 9.
Reports said the family members had gone to the local market to buy goods for her birth’s celebration when she allegedly killed the baby and threw into the toilet tank. The police have recovered the body.
“Apparently the baby was first strangulated to death before being thrown into the toilet tank,” the local Samastipur district superintendent of police Nawal Kishore Singh told the media on Wednesday adding the accused would be suitably punished.
