Chhattisgarh Breastfeeding Murder Sends Shockwaves: Similar Cases

In April this year, a woman reportedly killed her month-old daughter by dumping her in a public toilet in Faridkot, Punjab. She was the mother of two daughters and a son, and was allegedly bothered with the birth of another girl. She was arrested on the complaint of her husband.

Another disturbing case emerged from Maharashtra this year in February, wherein a father, allegedly annoyed by his infant daughter’s cries for sweets, repeatedly slammed her head on the door, leading to her death. Reports from 2018 Maharashtra claim a mother allegedly killed her sick toddler, fed up by his constant crying, and tried to pass his murder off as an accident.

An incident of a parent strangulating his daughter to death, since he didn’t want a girl, also surfaced from Ranchi last year. In 2017, a Jharkhand man ended his 3-year-old daughter’s life in fear that his pregnant wife will produce another girl, as per reports.
