PATNA: This is something which defeats the very purpose of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Selfie with Daughters” initiative aimed at saving the girl children.
In a shocking reminder of how things go in the hinterland of Bihar, two women have been brutally killed for giving birth to girl babies.
In a first incident reported from Gaya district, 30-eyera-old Pano Devi was beaten to death for bearing daughters for the fifth consecutive time in a row.
Reports said the woman who was married to Deepak Chaudhary, a resident of Telari village under Neemchak-Bathani police station, was killed and buried outside the village by her in-laws on Friday night.
In this connection, victim’s brother has registered a case against eight persons. All are absconding.
“We are conducting raids to nab the absconding accused persons,” a local police official said today.
Another similar incident was reported from Muzaffarpur district where Seema Devi was burnt to death by her in-laws.
She was married to one Jaswant Sahni, a resident of Narhar village under Kajra police station.
According to victim family, her in-laws began torturing her after she gave birth to two daughters before torching her on Friday.
She succumbed to her injuries at the local SKM College and Hospital on Saturday.
