Having kids is one of the many joys that comes with marriage, and many are blessed to be able to conceive. Most of us wouldn’t usually care about the gender of the baby, as long as he or she is healthy. But apparently, there are some people who take it to truly extreme extents when their baby isn’t the gender they expected.
A woman in Punjab was strangled to death by her husband when he found out that their fifth child was a girl.
The couple, who live in Anandpur Sahib, had the baby four months ago but the husband was disappointed over the baby’s gender and killed his wife out of frustration.
Rakesh Kumar, 40, was hoping for a boy as he and his wife already had four daughters aged, 14, 12, 10 and eight, The Star reported from Makkal Osai.
The police were alerted by the family’s neighbours when they heard the children crying during the incident. The man had allegedly tried to take his own life by slitting his throat but survived the attempt.
A police investigator said domestic violence cases over lack of male children were not uncommon in the state.
This is shocking! Let’s hope all five kids are in good hands and that justice will be done to their father.
