As the Indian culture modernised the ultimate want for having sons has lowered comparatively but has still not vanished completely. Even today there are many families longing for a son and if not, they threaten their daughter-in-law, she will be kicked out of the house or tortured. One such heart trembling case has occurred in the village of Pilibhit in Uttar Pradesh. A 37-year-old man, who was longing for a son after two daughters, allegedly threw his newborn daughter on the ground at a private clinic in the district on Wednesday. The incident happened in front of his wife and the child died on the spot. Shocked wife Shabbo Begum filed an oral police complaint, claiming that her husband used to abuse her for giving birth to two daughters earlier.
‘After giving birth to another daughter on Monday, on Wednesday my husband took the newborn in his lap and threw it on the ground. Due to which she died’, the wife stated in her complaint. She added that her newborn baby girl had some health issues and doctors advised her to be shifted to another medical facility for further treatment, but her husband refused. Shabbo Begum (28) married Mohammad Farhan (32), a farmer by profession, five years ago. The couple lives in Sirsa village under Kotwali police station limits along with their two daughters.
If she had a daughter, Farhan vowed to divorce her. Despite the fact that Shabbo’s mother submitted a documented police report, no FIR has yet been lodged. Now that the police are involved, I have to address the situation with my spouse, said Shabbo.
Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, the Puranpur Kotwali SHO, stated that the husband and wife had settled the issue amicably and that the woman did not desire any police intervention in this case. The woman, however, refuted the SHO’s assertion and declared that she wanted to see her husband punished. CO Sunil Dutt declared, “I will look into the situation and will also look into the accusations made against the SHO. It will be filed if the victim wants to file a FIR.
