A brutal and cold-blooded murder has come to light in Bengaluru after a 21-year-old man allegedly hurled his newborn daughter on the wall, killing her instantly, police said.
On Thursday night, 20-year-old Bule, the mother and a resident of Banaswadi, was tending to her 20-day-old baby girl, who began crying loudly. Even after feeding the baby, she continued to cry.
Kadra, her husband, was allegedly unhappy with the fact that Bule had delivered a girl child and would constantly fight with her about it.
Kadra and Bule were married more than 10 months ago, and last month, Bule delivered a baby girl. This had allegedly enraged Kadra to no end.
â€śOn Thursday night, the baby began crying and this angered Kadra. He began shouting loudly at Bule and the baby was crying and it urinated on the floor. Kadra told his wife that she was worthless and began beating her,â€ť the Banaswadi Police told TNM.
Bule allegedly begged him to stop but his beating continued. The little girlâ€™s crying increased and Kadra allegedly picked up the girl and hurled it at the wall of his home.
â€śThe woman, Bule came running into the station. She was crying and it took some time to console her. We were not able to understand what was happening. Finally she told us that her baby was dead and that her husband had hurled her baby on the wall because he didnâ€™t want a girl child. The woman also told us that her husband would slap the baby often, especially when she cried or urinated. She said her husband kept demanding a boy child and that he hated the baby,â€ť the police added.
When the neighbours heard Buleâ€™s screams, they found her sprawled on the floor, crying. They immediately rushed the baby to a nearby hospital, where she was declared brought dead.
â€śWhen we went to her house, Kadra was frantically packing his bags and was planning to leave the city. We arrested him and brought him to the station,â€ť the police added.
The baby was shifted to Dr Ambedkar Hospital where an autopsy was performed. Kadra was booked for murder and remanded to judicial custody.
