Gender biased woman kills infant girl, self

Erode, June 5 (PTI): A 34-year-old woman allegedly killed her three-month-old girl baby and later herself as she expected her second child to be a boy. The woman has a nine- year-old daughter, police said on Friday.

The woman was so agitated over not begetting a boy baby that she killed the infant by drowning it in a water tub, then went to her room and hanged herself, the police said.

The incident took place near Perundurai in Erode district on Thursday, they said, adding that a murder-cum- suicide case has been registered. PTI COR NVG NVG
