Husband abandons wife after she gives birth to third daughter

On one hand when 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' campaign makes headlines every second day, there still exists a portion of the society which still ill-treats a woman who doesn't give birth to male child as the society gives preference to a son over a daughter. In a similar incident, a man allegedly abandoned his wife just because she gave birth to a girl child. The victim woman, who hails from Agwanpur, was deserted by her husband Surendra after the latter found that she had delivered their third daughter. At present, the victim's mother is taking care of her at the Civil Lines District Hospital.
